    huge scale in Michigan.    CNC, welders and other manufacturing jobs are available and unfilled in the thousands.  They are not unskilled positions, but they are low paid.   Our asshole Governor and his CEOs are pissed that the need isn't being met.   When nobody trusts manufacturing anymore as a way to make a living and parents want college degrees (not that its any sort of a guarantee), it is hard to find good people to take a job as a disposable employee.   Wait till Obama shoves his new trade deal through.

      Send the kids to Vo-Tech, learn CNC, welding etc. Get experience and then pack up to places where the skills and experience are compensated properly. Let Michigan provide the training.

      •  mfg in michigan is just as unstable, mistrusted (0+ / 0-)

        and low paid as mfg in any other state.   If I can't trust it in MI, I can't trust it anywhere..... and lets not forget Obama's new secret trade deal.    

        Voc tech MUST be couple with college, associate degree at the minimum.   Given the greed, fickleness and unworthiness of our government's policies, anything less would be a disservice to the trainees.
