This week Governor Walker highlights the skills gap and how his education budget will help to close it.
"In the next 10 years, approximately 70 percent of jobs will require some training beyond a high school diploma but less than a four-year degree," says Walker.
The governor's budget increases flexibility for adult learners and technical colleges.
"We need to commit to worker training to ensure that our citizens have the skills they need for the jobs of tomorrow," Walker says.

Rep. Gordon Hintz of Oshkosh knocks a budget provision that would ease regulations on rent-to-own businesses in the Democratic weekly address.
Hintz says exempting the rent-to-own industry from the Wisconsin Consumer Protection Act would undermine the financial security of families and the health of local economies.
He claims such companies charge three to four times the value of items and target consumers "who have little money or no credit."
"It’s another special-interest giveaway and more evidence that the governor is looking out for the profits of wealthy campaign donors at the expense of working families," Hintz says.
