A Growth in Trade-Skill Training

As the economic landscape of the United States shifts to recover from the recession, there is a growing trend away from white collar trades. While ten years ago, a college degree in law, business or medicine seemed both the preferred and often necessary route to professional and financial success, these fields are becoming increasingly more difficult to find employment in. Furthermore, the years spent in lower levels of these occupations as apprentices and junior associates is increasing, while the pay bracket is getting smaller and smaller on both ends. The only thing becoming greater in fact, is the desolution of firms and loss of pre-existing jobs. This is inherently because such careers depend heavily on the amount of capital moving through the economy. In simplistic terms, if there is less money flowing, less people are needed to manage it.

Because of this decline, more young people are considering training in trade skills to start work in technical careers. Going through a certification course, or a one or two year technical school program can prepare you to be a licensed electrician, carpenter, or plumber. Jobs like this often include union membership, insuring reasonable hours and reasonable pay. Even when the economy is less that wonderful, new construction will always need the skills of such tradesman, as will older buildings that need maintenance. Continue reading »

Form 8-K

In addition to filing annual reports on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, SEC reporting companies must report certain material events within four days after the event. Form 8-K provides investors with current information to enable them to make informed decisions. The types of information required to be disclosed on Form 8-K are generally considered to be “material.” That means that, in general, there is a substantial likelihood that a reasonable investor would consider the information important in making an investment decision.

SEC reporting companies must file 8-Ks promptly rather than waiting until their next periodic report, such as the quarterly report on Form 10-Q or annual report on Form 10-K. SEC reporting companies are required to make most 8-K disclosures within four business days of the triggering event and in some cases even earlier. Form 8-Ks can be found on the SEC’s EDGAR website.

The need to file a Form 8-K is triggered by the occurrence of certain events or transactions described below: Continue reading »
