The 2012 Boston Indicators Report is out and challenges Boston to reinvent the region’s innovation economy. The problem? “The largest portion of new jobs and replacement jobs will be in the middle-skill job category, and we have not done as good a job as we could, and must, in training people for those middle-skilled jobs,” says Charlotte Kahn, the director of the Boston Indicators Project at the Boston Foundation, of middle-skill jobs like nursing, computer systems support, and hair styling.
