Nations around the world are still clawing their way back from the Great Recession. Now, five years later, industrialized countries are still down about 16 million jobs. A new report from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) finds that many of those without work are in need of a skills upgrade.

Marketplace’s economics contributor Chris Farrell joins Morning Report host David Brancaccio to discuss the state of job training around the world.
