When thinking about Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics it makes me think of how important this career cluster is to our economy. In what way do you think the cluster contributes to/effects our nation's economy? Please describe your two careers in this cluster first. How do you think each of your two careers in this cluster contribute to/effect our nation's economy? How does this cluster contribute to/effect the other clusters you have completed research in? The two careers I chose in the cluster of transportation are: a flight attendant, and a ship captain. A flight attendant tends to the needs of the pilot and the passengers on a flight. A ship captain steers a boat and controls the other workers on the boat and instruct them what to do. Both of these careers help get different goods to and from different places all over the world. By working on a plane you can deliver different products from place to place. By being a ship captain you take cargo from one place to another and drop it off to some place that needs it but can not produce the good. If we didn't have flight attendants and ship captains then you couldn't transfer things by air or water. These occupations are all a major necessity to our economy. In order to live in our everyday lives we need tranportation. Not every part of the economy can get what they need from the region in which they live. In order to get what they need from another region they use tranportation to transport the things that are needed to that are that does not have that. If we couldn't transport different goods to other regions that doesn't have that good then people would not be able to get what they need in order to survive. Transportation helps all other clusters in one way or another. Whether or not it has a big affect or a little affect on the other clusters. By using transportation to get goods to other places they help other clusters.
