High-paying Education Possible without the Debt


If you want to avoid the debt that comes with a college or university education, why not opt for an apprenticeship instead?

The United States, similarly to Australia has scores of young people without work, yet there are also massive job skills gaps. In The USA there are a reported 5.8 million job openings, according to CNN. So why are there some many people looking for a job?
