Florida Senator Marco Rubio is a fan of vocational training. At the Fox Business Network GOP debate in Milwaukee, Rubio made a pitch for young Americans to put down the textbooks and pick up a blowtorch.
"For the life of me, I don’t know why we have stigmatized vocational training," Rubiosaid. "Welders make more money than philosophers. We need more welders and less philosophers."
It was a big moment for Rubio, but was he correct? Philosophically and statistically speaking, no.
