Thanks for your December editorial. Starting with the excellent title, you hit the nail on the head.
As a manufacturer, we know that we have a difficult time hiring people for jobs in our shop. We realize that first we have to find people willing to work in shop environments. Next, we have to train them. There are simply no other avenues for anyone to learn the skills we need.
Our society is too hung up on the advantages of a college degree when there are many other (and less expensive) paths to the good life.
