Pgh Jobs-Too many highly Qualified, too little Jobs

Posted in the Bethel Park Forum

I wanted to get some thoughts on the employment problem we have in our city. It has been building over the years, but it seems that we have tons of highly educated people, professionals and MBA's (due to the abundance of local universities)but the city doesn't have enough middle to upper level jobs to support them. Therefore, I am seeing many leave the city for the careers they were trained for, rather than be underemployed here. And then I am seeing some stay here because they are scared to leave, and taking a sub par position to do so.

I believe our employment reports don't reflect this problem. Any city can report great jobs numbers/low unemployment, but they never report on the qualitative data.
