American Job Market 2019

The story of career schools has been a scapegoat for many journalist and media reporters. President Theodore Roosevelt often referred to these people as “Muckraker”.

“Muckraker” is now a common term for journalist in digging up scandal, and is usually pejorative in use. It is very necessary the we should not flinch from seeing what is vile and debasing. There is filth on the floor, and it must be scraped up with the muck-rake; and there are times and places where this service is in the most needed of all the services that can be performed.

The following of yellow journalism and scapegoating may have a very longterm negative effect on the American society. Our job market has never been better suited for jobs and employee opportunities. Below you will see a completed research by Gallup that explains this insight with the positive outlook for the job market.

The rest of the story is who is preparing our population to take advantage of this market? With each day, month and year we are seeing falling numbers of skilled workers. (Electricians, Plumbers, Welders, HVAC, Auto Technicians, construction management, information technology technicians) Will there be jobs available without people to fill the positions?

Career Schools that have been in existence for over 100 years are under attack by politicians who have no regard for the skilled education market needs. They are focusing on a student loan debacle they created and now are pointing fingers at the schools. Let’s wake up America don’t be convinced by “Muck-Rakers”. Scrape up the floor and be sure to know the facts by listening to the professionals who you trust.

My friend Rick Hess has recently written a good explanation of the loan forgiveness plan proposed by Senator Elizabeth Warren. Rick is a well-known author and authority in the progressive leadership for all levels of education. I had the fortune to work with him on an AEI committee and found great respect for his knowledge and wisdom.

I have included his article and have summarized some of this highlighted points.

  • Public as in the past need to take responsibility for loans. (median student loan debt is 17,000 dollars)
  • Paying off debt with government tax money is an insult to the intelligence of the tax payer.
  • Middle class workers who work hard to pay bills will be excluded from Senator Warren’s plan.
  • Those who benefit will be unemployed age in twenty-something with poetry grads from pricey schools win big.
  • precedence on bail outs has become a false answer to improvement plans
  • Senator Warren’s plan rewards big borrowers
  • Sets up punishment for those who have scrimped and teaches that playing by the rules is for suckers.
