Preparing For VERY Different Jobs In The Future
Anybody in your family work as a steam locomotive engineer or maker of buggy whips? There's not much call for those jobs anymore.
And there's no guarantee that the jobs we do today will be needed in a few years.

The non-profit WorkingNation works to prepare people for this future. Joan Lynch, Chief Content and Programming Officer, visits with details.
And the Oregon Employment Department tracks the trends as well.
Economist Guy Tauer from the Medford office joins us, too.
