It is a growing problem in our culture today to hear of young people who have accumulated many thousands of dollars in student loan debt and cannot find a job or have found a job that simply helps them make their school loan payments.
It is also a growing problem that many owners of trade businesses such as plumbing and electrical companies have more work than they can handle because of a drastic shortage of trained workers.
The challenge is real. Many millions of skilled trade workers are headed for retirement and few are trained to take their places.
My husband and I hear these stories many times each week as we run into business owners frustrated by their inability to grow their companies because of the shortage of qualified workers.
There is a great solution to both the woes of the business owner and the young person seeking a career that does not require mountains of debt to attain.
