It is a form of shorthand used by commentators and people like us. This is best illustrated by an example. Australia needs franchise trained car mechanics, panel beaters and paint sprayers. This could be referered to as an Australian skills shortage or if the skills are in high demand elsewhere (which they are) then an automotive skills shortage. Put simply it means they are more jobs than people capable of doing the work.
