While seven percent of Minnesotans are out of work, many Minnesota businesses are having a hard time finding qualified workers. On Tuesday, Oct. 25, Gov. Mark Dayton convened a day-long jobs summit to discuss this employment gap.

The Star Tribune covered the event in a front-page feature, “Closing skill gap key to solving job crisis.” Todd Mills, a machine tool technology student at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, is shown adjusting the settings of a metal lathe in the article.
