Mark Johnson and Dee Sarton host a special edition of Viewpoint from Western States Equipment Company in Meridian - a company that started up here in 1956 that specializes in selling, renting, and repairing heavy equipment.
This is a company that has expanded (this is a new shop) and is looking to fill positions. Over two dozen in fact, and they are having a hard time finding qualified applicants.
This is the kind of place you might find the Discovery Channel's Mike Rowe on one of his "Dirtiest Jobs" segments.
Mike joins Mark and Dee for a discussion of a topic he has taken on at the Congressional level and here at the grass roots level, and that is the widening "skills gap" here in America.
