U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Talks Jobs

"Right now, you know what the job that is in most demand in this country is right now? Welders! You can’t get them, you can’t find them, and they can make a lot of money. So those wages are going up to meet the demand."

"Blue-collar wages are rising faster than white-collar salaries because of different demand from employers, Donohue said. “White-collar wages have been moving up over time, a bit, and the demand there, because of technology and other things, is not as high as the demand [for blue-collar skiills]. … It’s a reality of the market.”"
