According to a recent international survey of workers in twenty four developed countries, which found that workers in the U.S. trailed many of their foreign peers in literacy, math, and problem-solving skills.
The survey, by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, of 166,000 workers between the ages of 16 and 65, is the most detailed comparison so far of abilities in the workforces of various countries, giving it credibility in the ongoing debate over America’s place in the world economy.
According to Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Japanese workers rank first, followed closely by Finland, then a trio of European countries, the Netherlands, Sweden and Norway.
