Two recent editorials in the Post-Gazette stress the importance of preparing our region's workers for future jobs.

"The Pittsburgh Region will Need More Workers," by William S. Demchak, CEO of PNC Financial Services and Vice Chair of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, stresses the need to align our schools and skills training to fill the jobs of the future as the regional economy evolves and baby boomers retire.

"STEM Still Stands Out," by Trip Oliver, the Policy, Government and Public Affairs Manager for Chevron Appalachia, and James Denova, Vice President of the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, says there's no time to spare in preparing workers in the Pittsburgh region for next-generation jobs.
