Globalization and Pittsburgh

This radio story on Pittsburgh is part of Global 3.0, by American RadioWorks for NPR. Apparently the radio broadcast will run at 7 p.m. on May 16th and again at 11 a.m. on May 22nd. The transcript of the whole thing is already online:
"This region has profited from immigration over the past 20 to 30 years, [but] not in the numbers, particularly in the '90s, that were a reality for many of the Sunbelt areas, California and Silicon Valley and so on," says Schuyler Foerster, head of the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh. "We're not going to have a workforce large enough, with the right kinds of skills, to be able to remain competitive as a region, particularly as the nature of global competition changes. We're just going to be short of people."
