Heating up to the art of welding metal
Niagara Gazette
Welding is certainly not an easy thing to do and it's definitely not something one can just pick up and go to work on. Most welders go through proper trade school or some other sort of education process. Sometimes students can learn in high school through BOCES programs, and many who study welding are later employed by companies who produce or fix metal structures. What many people fail to realize is that welding is not just a job that some people do, it’s a form of art. And whether it's done in an industrial setting or in a home studio, the craft takes patience, precision and above all, practice.

Employers aren't just whining — the skills gap is real
Harvard Business Review
Every year, the Manpower Group, a human resources consultancy, conducts a worldwide Talent Shortage Survey. Last year, 35 percent of 38,000 employers reported difficulty filling jobs due to lack of available talent; in the U.S., 39 percent of employers did. But the idea of a "skills gap" as identified in this and other surveys has been widely criticized. Peter Cappelli asks whether these studies are just a sign of "employer whining;" Paul Krugman calls the skills gap a "zombie idea" that "that should have been killed by evidence, but refuses to die." Really? A worldwide scheme by thousands of business managers to manipulate public opinion seems far-fetched.

Since Aug. 25, about 1,500 employees have been ripping up robots, dismantling old conveyors and preparing to install all new equipment that will be used to build the next-generation pickup.
