Job Shadow Day
Job Shadow Day

AIR DATE: February 3, 2011

On Wednesday, more than two thousand students will be skipping school to look at the world of work. Fifty business and organizations from casinos to the water authority will be hosting students who will look at what people do in their daily work lives. It's supposed to open their eyes to the possibilities and the realities of work. We talk with one of the organizers and three students who will be visiting a water treatment plant.
