Middle skills will rise in importance

The Futurist Magazine :
Middle-skill workers ranging from carpenters to radiology technicians will be needed in the key industries benefiting from U.S. federal funding, such as construction, health care, manufacturing, and transportation. In Rhode Island, more than 42% of job openings between 2006 and 2016 are projected to be middle-skill jobs, compared with 26% for low-skill and 32% for high-skill jobs.
