Parade Magazine highlighted SkillsUSA and their participation in the 2011 WorldSkills Competition — the Olympics of skilled labor — as a bright spot in economic news.
Thomas Holdsworth of SkillsUSA, said that at a time of sky-high unemployment rates, the competition holds a promise for future jobs: skilled professions offer some of the best opportunities in the country, according to the article.
“With so many baby boomers retiring, there’s never been a better time to be young and skilled in America,” he said. “These men and women will find jobs—without question. But right now, they are working hard to make us proud in London.”
