Nearly three quarters (73 percent) of U.S. companies expect an increase in their demand for “middle skills” jobs over the next few years, according to a recent report (November 2014), “Bridge the Gap: Rebuilding America’s Middle Skills,” published by Accenture, Burning Glass Technologies, and Harvard Business School.

More than half (56 percent) of those surveyed are struggling to find people with the qualifications to fill existing middle skills vacancies.
