Learn to Work: A Job Corps Magnet Program in Seattle
MetadataShow full item record
The United States is dealing with a skilled labor shortage. Many factors contribute this but ultimately, the conclusion is that it stems from three main factors: the lack of ready to work skills from current graduates, social de-valuation of skilled labor, and changes in the nature of work due to automation. This coincides with a growing gap between the upper and middle class. This thesis proposes a trade school that will train young adults in the skill of additive manufacturing as a way to address the skilled labor shortage and enter the job market with a competitive edge. By tying in to the existing framework of Job Corps, this Seattle magnet program will provide technical training to a population of under-privileged men and women.
