Bestinau got that-
NEW YORK, NY — Given the recent epidemic of college graduates with expensive degrees that don’t necessarily lead to lucrative careers — but often lead to nearly insurmountable debt — a radio host and career coach is encouraging job seekers to consider in a trade or technical school instead, which can often put you more reliably on the path to a successful career.
Ken Coleman of Ramsey Solutions was recently interviewed by Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business, where he said you can get many high-paying jobs without an expensive four-year college degree. Instead, a trade school can hire you at a “much higher salary” in just a few months.
“Trade schools and technology schools are exploding across the country and people are going through those in a much shorter time and for a lot less money and starting with a much higher salary,” Coleman said. “I mean, Georgetown just published a recent study showing that the number of people making more money in trade and commerce schools is increasing than their four-year-old counterparts.”
Coleman noted that trade schools are becoming highly viable alternatives to the traditional college experience.

Big Tech uses a content filtering system called “NewsGuard” for online censorship. Take a moment and check out our short video about NewsGuard to learn how to tell the story for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with news apps and search engines to make it harder for you to find certain content that they feel is “missing context” or stories that their editors “do not consider in your best interest to read” – whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also partner with major payment processors and ad networks to cut revenue streams to publications that they rate poorly by the same standards of bias. This should be criminal in America.

“The reason is that people are starting to understand. “Hold on, this is what I want to do and I can get them faster and I can spend a lot less money to get the ticket for that,” he said. “But as time goes on, I think higher education will become less and less relevant in the next five to seven years because it’s about getting me the job I want.”
The career coach talked about a recent story he had read about that involves a youngster who attended trade school and is now on his way to becoming a successful businessman in his community.
†So the story I read about a boy went to a welding school, he was in welding class two days a week and then working three days a week and he started making $50,000,” Coleman said. “Generally speaking, he would one day open his own business and hire people, and now you have an everyday millionaire, someone you don’t even think about being a millionaire, but they started at age 18, 19, 20, they have saved their money, and they win a lot.”
Another proponent of trade education is former dirty jobs host Mike Rowe, who has been a vocalist for many years and a staunch supporter of skilled crafts, to the point that in 2008 he founded his own non-profit foundation – mikeroweWORKS – aimed at connecting students eager to learn a trade with schooling , training and job opportunities.
“We currently have 7.3 million job openings, most of which do not require a four-year degree,” says Rowe. “They need training, they need skill, and they require a willingness to master a subject that is in high demand.”
