Help wanted: America's most in-demand workers

Image 1 of 10


In 2011, the staffing firm ManpowerGroup surveyed 1,300 US employers to learn what kinds of employees were the most wanted. Topping the list were skilled workers, which include electricians, bricklayers, carpenters, cabinetmakers, masons, plumbers, and welders. The shortage may be due to less people attending vocational schools as opposed to four-year colleges.
