This week on Top of Mind with Thom Ruhe, we discuss the weighty topics of immigration, manufacturing and healthcare. Thom takes a look at a new study that illustrates the drive to succeed demonstrated by immigrants and discusses what this has to do with the entrepreneurship. We take a look at America's decrease in workers in skilled trades, and how the healthcare world is the next industry headed for disruption. Finally, Top of Mind brings it home with the Top 10 Reasons Every College Student Should Intern at a Startup.
