Workforce FIT

There are great paying jobs doing important work that are going unfilled. Workforce FIT is a News 10 station initiative to educate the community about the severe shortage of workers in the skilled trades. Too many parents and children think that the only pathway to a successful career is by earning a four-year college degree — but the skilled trades also offer great benefits and retirement packages. Many of them only require two-year degrees, certification programs, training programs, or apprenticeships.

As workers retire, companies are struggling to find enough qualified employees to replace them. There is a desperate need to solve the problem. We want to help change the conversation from being college-ready to being career-ready.
