Obama: College Degree Not Needed for a Good Career

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) - President Barack Obama says not everyone needs a college degree to build a great career, as long as people have the right training.

Obama traveled to a General Electric facility in the Milwaukee area Thursday to promote training programs for in-demand jobs.

Obama says workers might make a better living with skilled trades and manufacturing than an art history degree.

He's ordering Vice President Joe Biden to lead a government-wide review of federal job training programs and make sure they are driven by employer needs.

Obama is following presidential tradition by traveling in the days after the State of the Union to promote his proposals.
