Again, I have no idea what you are talking about. Just because there a lot of trucking jobs doesn't not mean that other "trades" are in high demand and go wanting. But with "outdated" jobs like coal mining - yes those people should be trained for other jobsDerp, you dont even realize that you helped my point.
There are a lack of truck drivers and other skilled labor “middle class” workers.
Meanwhile there is a glut of college graduates and a shortage of college jobs...
Yet you want to give everyone free college....
The logic is dumb as fuck. We should be if we are going to offer free education, do so, in the middle class skilled labor trades. We dont do that
The US is experiencing a widespread worker shortage. Here’s why.
So there are a “lack of truck drivers” and ive shown a lack of a worker pool for these middle class jobs.
Grads are in general, having no problem finds jobs these days
I've never advocated for "free college". So not sure what that "point" is supposed to mean.
And I guess you didn't bother to read your own link?
It’s official: The US economy doesn’t have enough workers.
For nearly a year now, the number of open jobs each month has been higher than the number of people looking for work — the first time that’s happened since the Department of Labor began tracking job turnover two decades ago
They are home health care aides, restaurant workers, and hotel staff. The shift is happening because more and more Americans are going to college and taking professional jobs, while working-class baby boomers are retiring en masse.
There’s no better time for working-class Americans to demand better wages, benefits, schedules, and work conditions. It also means immigration reform is more urgent than ever. In order to fill all the open jobs and keep the economy growing, Congress will need to allow more low-skilled immigrants to work. Legally.
So, yeah, those jobs as health care aids and restaurant workers - you know those are shitty paying jobs right?
No wonder people want better-paying jobs. You simply can't live on mim wage jobs these days.
