Distinguished Senior Fellow Bob Herbert appeared on CNN's "Your Money" to address the job skills crisis in the U.S. Herbert explained that this political period of "austerity" is preventing badly needed investments in the infrastructure of job creation, including education, that will create skilled workers.
