Random idea: Re-skilling for basic and localised needs

With the COVID-19 economic crisis threatening business failures and job losses, I would think that re-skilling people would be a huge need. Of course we read a lot about needing to re-skill people in future ready digital skills – yes, this is important – but what about re-skilling people to something more basic like culinary skills, basic technical skills like electrical and automotive? What about basic skills on home handyman skills? Not everyone can be re-skilled on digital. Some perhaps will only need some skills to last the next 5-10 years. Equally important I guess is re-skilling in basic business and financial management. Other basic re-skilling – in language, perhaps in English or Mandarin. What do you think?
