3 What are Middle-Skill jobs?
Jobs that require more than a high school education but less than a bachelor’s degree. Include occupations such as machinists, technicians and healthcare workers. Account for nearly half of all current jobs in New York, and the majority of future job openings.

4 The Forgotten Middle A growing gap between qualified middle-skill employees and middle-skill jobs. There are approximately 4 million unfilled middle-skill jobs (Dimon, 2014). In 2009, 46% of jobs in NYS were middle-skill (3.8 million workers) Workers with two-year degrees in high demand occupations can earn salaries that surpass those of four-year degrees (Carnevale, Rose, & Cheah, 2011). Two-year degree holders in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math) have greater lifetime earnings than four-year degree holders in most other career areas.

5 The “College-for-All” Mentality
“Encourages all students to plan on college, regardless of their past achievement” (Rosenbaum, 2001). Pushes underprepared students toward a four-year college at the expense of vocational programs. Has created an surplus of four-year college graduates that exceeds the number of college-level jobs available. 35% of all four-year college graduates currently have jobs that require less than a college degree (Vedder, 2010). 12 to 24 million U.S. jobs – most requiring middle-skills training – may go unfilled between now and (Gordon, 2009).
