What's the path to that dream job? How does one job lead to another? Youth Radio finds out in our series Jobstacles.

Sal Algaba is a plumber, but he didn't always know that was what he wanted to do. In fact, it took Algaba years before he found his way into the trade. He says, "You have to get experience from working. You have to start at fast food places or retail. Yes it's hard work and yes it's demanding work, physically and mentally at times, but that's how you learn responsibility." Watch the video to find out how Algaba's career unfolded.
