ABSTRACT
The article comments on the problem of illiteracy in the U.S. workforce. Illiteracy has become so prevalent in the workforce that a growing number of employers are banding together to tackle the problem. Illiteracy is a disease that is easier to cure than any physical problems that plague the world. All it takes is a little simple learning, learning that any 5- or 6-year-old can readily achieve. The biggest problem to be overcome, in adults, is their embarrassment or fear of losing their jobs if they admit their inability to read or write. And business and industry, facing a serious need for literate workers, must be in the forefront in battling this insidious malady.
