Even though the economy has taken a nose dive and job hunters are out in force, researchers say that by 2025 California will be starved for college-educated workers to fill available jobs.

In fact, the state will need about a million more college-educated workers than it’s expected to have – a shortage that will lead to a lower standard of living in California and more people needing social services, according to a new report by the Public Policy Institute of California.

The report predicts that 41 percent of workers will need a college diploma (4 in 10 jobs will require one), but only 35 percent of working-age adults will have the necessary degree.
