Reduce the amount of hours worked in a standard workweek.
Better incentives for going to school/specialized training, including paid time off. (This kills two birds with one stone - takes people out of the workforce and makes them more relevant when they come back in).
When I was young (quite a while ago) this is what we were told that life was going to be like when we grew up. (Of course I never did grow up - but you get the idea)
