Re: “Get to Work

Great story which outlines that our government and school`s are leaving behind a valuable and much-needed program. I have said for years our schools need more trade programs alongside the college prep courses. It's almost as if the students that are interested in a trade program are being discriminated against. It all boils town to our government and how the all mighty dollar gets distributed.
Being a self-employed contractor myself, the number one problem I have is finding people that know how to work. That actually want to work, as mentioned in the article. It's a huge problem in this county. Too many millennials are either growing or trimming and making enough money in three months to last until the next growing season. Humboldt County needs to step up and create a trade program model that could be replicated throughout the state. Perhaps then our politicians will take notice that not every student is interested in college.
Thank you, Amy, for a great news article.
