STEM Fairs are Re-engaging Young People in Skilled Labor

If you asked me what I like best about my job, my usual answer is that I really enjoy helping fabricators select equipment that help them do their job more effectively. But another aspect that I’ve really grown to love is talking to young people about working in skilled trades.

All the skilled labor, they said, would transition to countries that could do it much cheaper.

Well they were wrong.
