Low Skill-Bad Job Trap As long as productivity is low the economy can never escape the vicious cycle of “low skill-bad job” trap. As Snower () argues, this trap occurs when workers have low skills due to insufficient training and firms are not induced to offer sufficient skilled vacancies of jobs and employment that will require high.   This interaction can lead to what Booth and Snower () call the "low skill, bad job trap". It has been quite firmly established, by economists who seek to explain why some countries have higher rates of economic growth than others, that high levels of skill among the workforce contributes both to high levels of national income and to higher.
