Meanwhile agriculture cannot get enough local workers to fill jobs, trades suffer from skill shortages and hospitality is tipped for growth and already employs the greatest proportion of young workers. Retail, hospitality and agriculture have the nation’s three lowest-skilled workforces as 50 per cent or more do not have a qualification beyond high school, while no experience is required to start an apprenticeship."
