Is wswatch12's cameron derby is in central point, at the construction of the new off-ramp to pine street.
We go to him live now.
Cameron, you have been talking with constuction companies this week, what can you tell us about the future of skilled workers?
There is a serious concern, like you mentioned, on the lack of young people moving into skilled trades.
There are pently of sides to the argument.
Some feel the problem is some young people's lack of work ethic.
Some feel the problem is within the schools.
Some feel the problem is the cost to live in our valley, and that sends people away.
Newswatch12 will be diving deeper into the issue, by airing a skilled to work special on april 23rd, at 6:30pm.
After that, each tuesday, a newswatch12 reporter will feature a skilled worker from our area.
Those will be aired tuesdays at 6pm, and also right here on newswatch12 this morning.
I will keep bringing you updates all morning long.
