State of Michigan Starts ‘Going Pro’ Campaign to Fill Skilled Trades Jobs
We could ALL have guessed that this was going to happen eventually, no?
Michigan's Talent and Economic Development Department has launched a $3 million campaign to encourage workers to forgo a four-year degree and get into a skilled trade.
Jobs include construction, manufacturing, healthcare, automotive and information technology. Basically, you need SOME training, but not a Bachelor's Degree.
The Department says that, by the end of 2026, the state will need to fill over 500,000 skilled-labor jobs...because older workers are retiring.
