Texas A&M-Commerce economics professor Dr. Dale Funderburk says Texas employers are having a difficult time finding people to fill open jobs, particularly in construction.  He says employers are beginning to provide their own training programs to fill the need for workers, and the Texas public schools, colleges and universities must provide more better trained students to keep the economy going.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
