Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Los Angeles Region faces unprecedented economic challenges, many of which, if leftunaddressed, will lead to competitive and economic decline. One major challenge is workerswho are left unemployed or with obsolete skills as a result of diminishing or relocating industries(automobile manufacturing, aerospace, manufacturing, fashion, etc.). Jobs lost in disappearingindustries are often high paying manufacturing jobs, which have been described as, a matter offundamental importance to the economic strength and national security of the United States.More than any other industry, a globally competitive manufacturing sector translates inventions,research discoveries, and new ideas into better or novel products or processes.1Unable to find equivalent manufacturing jobs, workers are settling for jobs that lack benefits andthat pay one-half to one-third of what they earned previously. Another challenge is the mismatchbetween the growth of new industries requiring workers with specialized skills and a workforcethat is untrained or unprepared for these new jobs, including many with significant skills gapssuch as a lack of a high school diploma, or limited proficiency in English. A consistent influx oflow-skilled or unskilled immigrants and a large influx of returning veterans are additionaleconomic challenges facing the Los Angeles Region.
