ST. CLOUD - A new survey says one of the biggest challenges facing manufacturers in greater Minnesota is the lack of skilled workers.

The sixth annual "State of Manufacturing" survey was released last week.

Enterprise Minnesota CEO Bob Kill says trained workers are harder to find the further north you go in Minnesota.  He says Technical Colleges will play a key role in helping to train a new workforce.

Kill says the rising cost of health care is a big concern.

The State of Manufacturing Tour will be stopping at the St. Cloud Technical and Community College tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2:00 p.m.
