Mike Rowe on Labor Day 2013

Found some excellent information from TV celebrity Mike Rowe. You may have seen him on the TV show Dirty Jobs. Mike now has a website called Profoundly Disconnected.

Here's an excerpt from Profoundly Disconnected...
A trillion dollars in student loans. Record high unemployment. Three million good jobs that no one seems to want. The goal of Profoundly Disconnected is to challenge the absurd belief that a four-year degree is the only path to success. The Skills Gap is here, and if we don’t close it, it’ll swallow us all...
Mike's video below challenges us to re-think our approaches to skilled trades and education. While Rowe did not make this video for Labor Day 2013, I couldn't think of a better date to post this information.

Also, check out the informative article Working Harder and Smarter: What Ashton Kutcher and Mike Rowe Have to Teach Us by Jordan Ballor of the Acton Institute.
