‘Brain hubs’ create middle-skill jobs

“Brain hubs” with well-educated workers, such as Austin and Raleigh, also create middle-class jobs for middle-skill workers. Opportunity spills over — or, at least, trickles down. But, in most of the country, less-skilled workers face bleak job prospects.

    What makes this interesting to me is that with the creation of these middle-skill jobs it poses a challenge to higher education institutions. Community colleges now need to move towards create quality certification and degree programs that help equip these workers with the tolls necessary to be successful and grow within their field. Just like the situation with Mr. Kannerman who was able to move up after time and experience to a higher paying job. Adult education has to change and adapt to the needs of the community and the environment.
