Laws of Supply and Demand Driving 6-Figure Salaries in Blue-Collar Jobs: Crash Repair CEO

A shift in the U.S. workforce is taking place, with renewed emphasis on vocational education over four-year college degrees. According to the Pew Research Center, 40 percent of U.S. adults surveyed said that a four-year degree is not necessary to make a decent wage. Furthermore, local trade schools say they are seeing an increase in enrollment.

One example is that of Pinellas Technical College in Clearwater, Florida, where the average student is 22 years old. NTD explores this topic with Matt Ebert, the CEO of Crash Champions collision-repair services. Mr. Ebert says over half of his technicians earn 6-figure salaries.
