French industries face a shortage of skilled workers

Business is booming in France, but employers in manufacturing and industry are struggling to fill job vacancies because young people aren’t training for those sectors.

France is enjoying its strongest economic growth in six years.

However, many employers, especially in manufacturing and industry, are struggling to meet the demands of their customers because they can’t recruit the qualified staff they need.

Some economists say this shortage of skilled workers could slow growth.
