Our current academia higher level education system pressures students into a one-size-fits-all path that simply doesn’t fit everyone. Michigan is the car manufacturing capital of America, but as our skilled tradesmen retire, we don’t have enough employees who have the skills to replace them. I’m a strong proponent of education apprenticeship and technical trade programs. There’s this stigma that you are less if you work with your hands. I want to change that. Tradesmen and women are the backbone of our society, and it’s time we give our skilled workers the credit they deserve while also filling the employment gaps in our technical fields.
