Mike Rowe makes a good point about college education

Post by CNN.

Mike Rowe is not someone I always agree with but he makes a good point here of talking up the effort to learn a trade. With college tuition remaining unfaffordable to many, plus the fact that many graduates find it difficult to find work these days, learning a trade or a specific technical skill might be a better alternative.

To reiterate the skill you learn doesn’t necessarily have to be construction, manufacturing or mechanically related. It can be computer based like programming, graphic design or information technology.
