Manufacturing Skills GapI am a college graduate (B.A. and M.B.A.) and I know many people who, both did or did not, attend and graduate college. I can say now, with some age and observation, and very high level of confidence, that a college degree does not determine the sucess level of an individual. In fact, there are many other driving forces outside of that degree, that can determine if one is going to be a "sucessful" individual.
In the broadest terms, we really need to get out of the habit of selling our society a dream of sucess through the sole means of college. There are many differnent ways to achieve success, however we individually define success. With that, I have come across a great article on the Manufacturing Skills Gap; and the need we will have in the future for these skilled laborers.
Always ask "why"
