As the economic climate in Ohio continues to evolve, a recent trend that I am pleased to see is a renewed awareness of the value and need of the skilled trades in this state. With student debt rising and many young people finding themselves stuck in financial turmoil after earning their degrees, it makes sense for us as state legislators to provide support to an alternate route through skilled trade programs, which can provide Ohioans with in-demand, high paying jobs with minimal debt. The student debt epidemic is becoming a major issue, partially due to a lack of financial literacy, and I am working on two pieces of legislation to help curb this in the future.
