Our region faces workforce challenges that disproportionately impact communities of color. Minnesota is already experiencing a significant drop in labor force growth. According to the State Demographer, projections indicate only 0.从2020年到2025年，劳动力增长1% 零 劳动力增长到2045年. In fact, by 2045 the state will need an additional 326,000 新 workers to maintain a 0.5%的劳动力增长率. More urgently, from 2016 to 2020, the state will need an additional 49,700 新 工人(在预计的33人之上,400 workers entering the workforce during that time period) in order to continue a 0.5%的劳动力增长率 over the next five years.
The Twin Cities region is home to some of the greatest racial disparities in employment and education compared with other metropolitan areas across the country. Communities of color face many barriers to participating in the workforce including, 但不限于:
- Failing public school systems: School systems which fail to graduate around 50% of students of color and then fail them again in subsequent 格 programs (which have poor completion rates), particularly following changes to the exam in 2014.
- Lack of opportunity for education and training: until July 2014, a 30% cap on the number of MFIP participants that could pursue education or job training.
- Limited access: a lack of social networks that support entry into the economic mainstream.
- ‘Soft skills’ policies: systems focused on providing support services and soft skills as opposed to industry recognized hard skills that enable individuals to obtain good jobs.
All of these factors are exacerbated as our workforce growth slows to a halt and the composition of the workforce itself becomes more diverse. 正如亚虎pt国家的人口统计学家所说, “failing to better develop the talent of all residents is squandering needed human capital. Some of the poorest performing groups are also the fastest growing among Minnesota’s population.”
亚虎pt不能让没有技能的人离开, underutilized communities of color on the sidelines anymore. Developing the human capital of these communities is our opportunity. 亚虎pt is a community leader in growing a skilled, diverse workforce that will help ensure stability for our regional economy while connecting low income people with the tools they need to escape poverty.
