labor worker Florida Manufacturers
Florida manufacturers have been complaining that they can't find qualified workers to fill available positions while some educators believe more emphasis is needed on training some students to move directly into the workforce rather than the college track.

The pilot program at Hillsborough Community College in Brandon is underway and this week on Florida Matters, host Carson Cooper discusses workforce training with our guests.
