What happens when "The Baby Boomers" are gone?

The first wave of Baby Boomers are hitting the age of retirement, thus vacating jobs in the skilled trades that they have held for 40+ years. This in turn, is going to leave Ontario, and the rest of Canada, with an extreme shortage of welders

The first wave of Baby Boomers are hitting the age of retirement, thus vacating jobs in the skilled trades that they have held for 40+ years. This in turn, is going to leave Ontario, and the rest of Canada, with an extreme shortage of welders and other skilled trade workers. The emphasis for the past decade has been the myth that a University degree is the only path to a rewarding life. As many now realize, the tens of thousands of dollars that they invested into that university degree has gotten them no closer to their desired career, but has left them working medial minimum wage jobs. Tuition costs are constantly being increased, acceptance standards constantly being lowered, and the prospect of a career upon graduation decreasing. But why still the push by our education system to go to university? Why do we still believe a half credit careers class in grade 10 is enough to inform our youths on job prospects for their future? With the looming shortages of welders and skilled trades workers in Canada, would a logical solution not be to stream for of our youths into these fields? As per usual, we are getting the political run around and attempts at creating programs and grants that have been put together with outdated information.
