ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Many of the jobs openings in our area today are in manufacturing health-care and technology. But 23 News job expert LoRayne Logan says she cannot find enough qualified applicants with the reading and math skills required for the spots.

Logan adds the talent shortage problem is so severe, many companies worry if they are going to be able to meet their growth and sales goals.

"It's creating a lot of stress for people. It's creating stress for the workforce because they are having to work so many hours and it's creating stress for management because they can't hit their sales goals."
