Do the libs in the Texas legislature consider lawyers to be skilled workers?

Instead of allocating more resources into STEM education, liberal DEM legislators want to open a law school in the impoverished Southern Region of Texas.

"Texas produces more law school graduates than it has jobs for. But that has not stopped some lawmakers from proposing that the state build a public law school in the Rio Grande Valley."

-The Texas Tribune. Backers Push a Law School in the Valley. By REEVE HAMILTON

“Since the mid-1970s, the gap between rich and poor has grown considerably. One of best analyses of this long-term trend is by the Harvard economics professors Claudia Goldin and Lawrence Katz in their book, “The Race Between Education and Technology.” The authors conclude that widening inequality is largely a symptom of the educational system’s failure to provide enough skilled workers to keep up with the ever increasing demand.” — Greg Mankiw, professor of economics at Harvard University

    "skilled workers" generally refers to"blue collar" works/jobs.

    Lawyers would be considered "professionals"

    If they go to Law School in Texas, doesn't mean they have to practice law in Texas. They cant take the tests in any state.
