Should young people today go to a 4 year university or enter the trades? Some students do both: Get a job through a technical program so they can make enough money to support their plan for college. Others find a lifelong career and steady work in welding, carpentry, mechanics or heavy equipment. Is there a best approach? Developing the workforce of tomorrow is our discussion on the next Talk of Alaska.
