    Employers have been outsourcing the training to schools for too long. . Why not give tax money directly to companies to train the workers. That would cut out the middlemen in the form of community colleges or universities. Once you give money to Colleges they have to spend millions on unionized staff, hence it’s more cost effective to fund the companies themselves and let them train their own workers. That way they can train them on exactly on what they need to know instead of wasting their time in University, taking basket weaving elective courses that do nothing but keep teachers of useless subjects employed with tax payer money
