The Case for Ending Mystery and Stigma of Skilled Trade and Craft Work and their Education Pathways

COVID-19 has made it obvious just which jobs (and the education and training to get and keep them) are essential to economic recovery and to making America even greater than before the crisis.

This 8 minute and 40 second piece aired on PBS February 18, 2020 and features an interview with Mike Rowe of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation. The piece makes the compelling case that, if American leaders in business and government want to invest in essential education and improve the economy and America’s post-COVID prospects, it’s probably time to give way more favorable consideration to skilled trade and craft programs, and invest, invest, invest.
