The Perfect Labor Storm is far from over. While millions of Americans are being laid off, one organization is demonstrating how difficult it is and will be to find qualified workers. Despite many attempts to trivialize the threat of imminent skills shortages, the Perfect Labor Storm encompasses a far broader and more threatening landscape. In addition to gaping skills gaps in our workforce, finding people integrity makes the job that much more difficult.
And the problem goes all the way to the White House. Of the 373 Obama administration jobs that require Senate confirmation, only 43 have been filled. Many potential nominees have been disqualified because of tax or nanny problems or other blemishes on their records.
