AUSTIN (KXAN) — The state’s Comptroller’s office says there’s a demand for high skilled labor and the state is having a tough time filling those jobs.  Wednesday morning it will release a report on the workforce and how to fix the problem.

The Comptroller’s office said it will lay out ways young people and workers in all stages of their work lives can get the training needed to compete for those jobs.

It will also give recommendations for Texas education, business, and legislative leaders to help students and older workers gain access to the right training and education needed.
