Getting trades back in the high schools
On today's show I speak with Austin C. and Seth W. about the importance of talking about the trades in high school. Too many schols place all the importance on 4 year colleges or the military. These are all great options, but if the student is not interested in the universities or selective service, the trades is a great place to check out! We talk about what it is like to get an education after high school, only to be left with debt and headaches, and how the union Millwrights made both of those easier to handle. This episode is one that should be shared as much as possible with anyone under 18 that is starting to wonder what options life has for us after graduation.

Encouragement to start a new career.
Today I talk to kendal, Josh and william about what its like to leave a job that is paying you 40 hours a week for a career that has layoffs as a normal part of life. We discuss the quality of life, perks of travel, and a few good rerasons to make the life style change, to being union millwright. I talk about what the pre trial apprentice progam does for you and the fact that it is a no obligation program that allows you try a new career with out totaling leaving your job right away. We here at 2158 we know it is a big decision to leave a job that pays every week for a career that will pay long after you have retired. This is one of the largest problems that people looking to become a millwright face, and 2158 gave them what they wanted, a way to "test drive" their new career!! Just another problem that local union 2158 has solved!
