Hiring Homers

Boston Globe has an uber-relevant article for us today:  Alarm over shortage of nuclear experts

Long before Westinghouse started it's latest expansion I calculated that the concentration of the nation's nuclear engineers in the Pittsburgh region must be higher than most anywhere else.   Not just Westinghouse, but Bettis and other factors all fed into that. In fact, I can make a simple argument connecting our industrial past to nuclear today.  Yet now with Westinghouse trying to expand as fast as they can, they are in the center of this labor supply conundrum....  How to grow a workforce that has been moribund for almost precisely a career-length?
