“Is college worth it?”
A recently published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated a massive need for construction workers in the months of May and June.
According to the BLS report, in June, there were over 225,000 jobs available in the construction industry throughout the United States.
This data confirms a number of recent media reports claiming the construction industry has a need for highly-skilled and highly-trained workers.

Do you want to be excited about going to work, knowing a new challenge is waiting for you?
Are you tired of spending all day staring at a screen or getting yelled at by customers?
Athletes know that success comes through hard work and discipline, by getting up early day after day and training when no one else is and by doing the things no one else will.
As an athlete, you also know that you are only as strong as the team that surrounds you— the people who encourage you when you are down and tired but not out, the brothers and sisters who push you to go beyond yourself and become your best self.
Michael Price, author of What Next? The Millennial’s Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the Real World, believes anyone who makes the terrible mistake of pursuing a college education in this day and age will live to regret it.
He believes that in the 1970s, college and universities used propaganda to convince people to attend their schools in order to get better jobs, while increasing the school’s profits through increased enrollment.
