Christine Romans on a recent Manpower survey listing jobs with most worker shortages due to lack of skilled workers.
Your report states "Companies claim trouble finding workers" and "Top 5 worker shortages include ENGINEERS"
Your early show then stated companies therefore are looking to China and other countries to outsource.
I can tell you that SEVERAL of those companies (not all) ARE FALSIFYING in order to create a false sense of worker shortages because they want access to cheaper labor. This has been going on for over 1 year and from your morning show it appears this is common throughout the USA. BTW only one major network caught onto this a little because they discussed claimed worker shortages then interviewed people who say they can't find a job.
Engineers have noticed months ago that "many posted positions are fake," "my firm is doing endless interview
processes but not hiring even when finding qualified candidates". Companies are PURPOSELY advertising jobs for 4-6 months then stating
"After all of that we decided to use our same old consultant" or "..sorry the position was closed" and "Yes we are interested.. wait we have many candidates... wait we have our own internal candidate.. our own internal worker took that job.." or "hmmm, yes that candidate was qualified but our needs have just changed" ( they did this for 7+ months). or after finding a good match, they quickly re-posted and redefined the job description and tell people they've been looking for some time but can't find anybody.
Many engineers are desparate to leave their lousy work environment but half of the job leads out there are FAKE and those same employers posting ads state they CAN'T FIND SKILLED WORKERS. That way, they can lobby for cheaper outsourced labor.
