Steve KingI support trade schools and apprenticeships for building and technical skills.
Over the next decade trillions will be spent on infrastructure and there is already a shortage of workers to operate the equipment to do those jobs.
Skilled machine operator is another job that goes begging. Many trades are experiencing shortages and it takes years to fill the pipeline so those jobs will go to non residents or the work will be shipped overseas.
We have to stop the treadmill to college that no longer guarantees a job but does result in huge student loan debt. This debt is now in the trillions and bigger than all consumer debt for the first time in history.
Work is the most important vehicle to a better life and that is why the process of background checks forces so many to go into the underground economy.
