Employers need skilled workers; young people want a path to a good job without accruing lots of debt. Twenty years ago, a manufacturing worker might have operated a machine on a factory floor. Today, that worker would need to understand not only how to operate the machine, but also how to program and maintain it. Similarly, many health care workers, such as medical coders and health information managers, now need to know IT as well as the basics of medicine.

The metro talent competition: attracting and growing highly educated workers - Brookings Institution
These talent magnets face two potential risks. One is that their business communities, which have come to rely on imported talent, may underinvest in local systems designed to equip home-grown populations with access to critical skills and economic opportunities. This could further exacerbate the growing economic inequality that characterizes many regions with large in-state/out-of-state attainment differences, and threatens stable, long-term economic growth. A second risk stems from evidence that long-distance migration continues to decline, even among younger populations, which suggests limits to overreliance on an attraction strategy for regional human capital development.
