skilled labor

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel's program Dirty Jobs testified in front of the a Congressional Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee last week. It was very interesting testimony on the need for skilled labor. It also connects very well with some of the ideas I brought up several weeks ago in a post on trade schools and the military. At our core, if we want to be an industrial nation rather than a service one, we need skilled labor.
