John Ratzenberger: 'We bought into the fallacy that everyone has to go to college'

The government reported this morning that the economy gained 103,000 jobs in September. Although it's better than economists expected, the numbers aren't large enough to really make a dent in the unemployment rate.

So, where are the jobs? Are the employment opportunities out there just not enough qualified people able to fill them? John Ratzenberger, actor and American manufacturing activist, says yes.

Ratzenberger is working with AOL/Huffington Post this week to launch the "10 by 20 Pledge Campaign," which aims to develop 10 million skilled workers by 2020. He joins Christine Romans on American Morning today to explain the campaign and to discuss how we can create manufacturing jobs in America.
