The more familiar I am getting with the manufacturing sector – the more concerned I am that we have created a Bias towards college degrees that may leave the US shortchanged in the long run. We need machinists, mechanics, structural mechanics, plumbers, electricians, road workers, wood workers, etc. – and entry into those jobs is getting smaller and smaller. In my home state of Georgia – out of the the 500 high schools – only 30 have Shop class now.
What do you think?
