Middle Skills Jobs

Middle-skills jobs are those that require more than a high school diploma but less than a four-year degree and pay over $15 per hour. Jobs that currently only require a high school diploma will experience negative job growth in the coming years and will be replaced by middle-skill jobs. Employment prospects for those with a degree are still bright and middle-skill jobs can be part of a career pathway into more education and even more lucrative employment. The research in this report explores middle-skills jobs prospects in southeast Michigan.
