Creating jobs in Michigan means filling positions that are currently vacant. That's according to U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta, who met with employees at the Milton Manufacturing plant in Detroit and the Ford Truck Plant in Dearborn to speak about apprenticeships and skilled trades training. He says education is an important part of filling skilled trade job vacancies. "We need to educate folks to fill the jobs that are empty. It's call demand-driven education, and we really need to work on that as a country."
