you did touch on this BUT I still believe that the biggest problem companies have today (in the US) is not finding workers w the right qualities.

the most important qualities these days are competence/professionalism, good attitude, entrepreneurship, vision, ability to listen, and lastly, and least of all in many businesses, experience.

What has changed is how to get a good job. This requires innovation.

But from my pov the big problem entrepreneurs have is not EVER finding the right person/people. Many businesses have closed because of this reason alone.
