© 2006 POPULATION REFERENCE BUREAU Conclusions In todays labor market, workers with the proper educational foundation and technical skills have an employment and earnings advantage. Demand for workers with a postsecondary education will be even greater in the future as technological advances change work in technical and nontechnical fields. Because race and ethnic groups differ in their educational achievement, demographic trends in the labor force will affect the availability of workers with the needed education and technical skills. Growth of the science and engineering workforce will slow unless the representation of Hispanics and African Americans in these fields increases, and/or older workers delay retirement.
