The president is receiving criticism for not meeting with his jobs council in six months but one member says the council is meeting and seeing accomplishment.
Charlene Miller is the CEO per -- industries and a member of the president's council on jobs and competitiveness.
She's here to give us a Fox Business exclusive on what she says is the real story first.
Let's get this they haven't met in fifty -- or whatever that cat is out of the way.
Have you guys -- and -- meeting is it is it just like eating is at fault is it in person are you meeting.
Well we had net interest in several times and we -- as reasons ends January ends this year.
But it's not really about meeting in her saying it's about.
Action in doing something about jabs and we actually do need my phone -- We do -- -- interviews and and together.
So our and we have monthly co chair meetings and have stated that our practice reports.
Well listen -- what do you think is the single most effective programs that the jobs council has put in place which one can you point to -- -- we've gotten results from this.
Well actually there's several out that we've received results -- then -- and most process is -- laying dead I co -- and for -- high tech education and it's called right skills now and it's about treating for manufacturing high tech manufacturing.
And it's a collaboration between community colleges.
And -- since.
And it's training people pretty open jabs that we actually have today going and have failed.
When you say training going unfulfilled in the olden days you get higher by -- company and they put to the school.
Then companies stopped doing that hoping that somehow higher education would teach people how to make.
I don't know what algorithmic creations or for whatever complicated thing we do here in -- the -- this country in Silicon Valley or wherever.
And finally these companies are saying you know what.
Nobody can train these people like we can.
It's an investment.
But is that I'm hearing you say.
That companies or perhaps shocking their duties of training people so that those people then do exactly what the company's need and want them to do.
Actually -- this program and their right skills now is -- training.
And it's making sharing that the people who come to Lara plants have this skill sets that -- needed such as math and problem satellite.
And that Indian looks and -- different buildings and marinara half million dollar Clinton and from day one and we still have to do extensive training.
That this will give them their basic skills that are you know I have been tapped out there.
So -- he's saying that the unemployment rate is still eight point 2% because we have too many workers to have the wrong skill yeah.
I truly believe that we do have a skills mismatch and there's -- -- company today going and -- failed.
All of makes sense because with too many people working construction but quickly as we finish up what are you meeting in person next I mean when you say January.
That's seven and a half months ago.
Well we're continuing to me like I say monthly if -- I have to -- And this is a year at the implementation.
