Rep. Kat Cammack (FL-03) spoke with Campus Reform about the future of America’s workforce, Florida’s new campus free speech law, and the opportunities available to today’s students.
Cammack praised the expanded opportunities that are available for students to specialize within fields of study while noting that some degrees are far more relevant to the workforce than others. “I think there should be an understanding or at least just recognition of hey, if I’m getting a degree in underwater basket weaving, that probably isn’t an in-demand type field,” she said. “But if you are an engineer, if you are in information operations or technology, if you are in, heck, even some of the business and construction industries, anything in science, those are industries that are in demand.”
