How many times have you heard the reason Americans are having their jobs offshore outsourced or displaced through insourcing is because....Americans need more Training and Education
Tell that to any PhD from one of the best schools in the United States (which means in the world), who just had their research position offshore outsourced and can't find a job. Right now you can probably dig up any Scientist in Pharmaceutical research and hear this story.
So, of all news organizations, Fox is pointing out this great lie. Please note both Obama and McCain claim the answer to our jobs being offshore outsourced is more training and education, McCain being the most oblivious to reality.
“Stay in school,” is often touted as the best advice for young people, but no one ever specified for how long. Out of the top 15 fastest growing jobs for 2006-2016, 10 do not require a college degree, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics
Think that's good news that jobs don't require this massive education as claimed? Well not exactly.
Peggy Wireman, author of Connecting the Dots: Government, Community and Family, said that 50% of all new jobs created in the next 10 years will be in just 28 occupations, and of those 28 occupations, only five will require a college degree. This is good news for individuals who don’t want a degree, but bad news for those who’d like to make enough money to support a family, according to Wireman.
Of the 28 occupations she examined, none of them supported a family of four above the “self-sufficiency” level, which is twice the poverty level or higher. Eight of the jobs would not support a family of four even at a poverty level; 11 would support a family at the poverty level
