George Pataki on Jobs

Republican NY Governor

 


Honor blue-collar work; skilled builders instead of college

The construction industry says one of their biggest problems is they can't find craftsmen to do the work. What we have to do is honor blue collar work again. We have to honor the carpenter, the plumber, the electrician, who can actually build something and instead of just saying that a college degree delivers prestige, let's celebrate those who do things with their hands and elevate their skills using training in high school and community colleges.
