I noticed that when my husband got laid off from his high tech job, he got a job as s stock boy at Sears
Nearly everyone there had a degree.
A lineman has to know something about electricity, and many have bachelor's degrees.
Your point is well taken, though. .Many people get degrees in stuff that there are few jobs in, like Anthropology or Classics, and even Marine biology or Ecology. They go to great schools with great costs. I wonder ihow many of them go back to a community collge to get certified in something useful.

My master plumber lives on a five acre property in a house valued at half a million with a BMW as his personal car. He is as honest as the day is 24 hours long. He once looked at me and told me it would be cheaper for me to buy bag ice each week for five years than to repair my ice maker. He made the county repair an issue out on the street line instead of attempting to tell us it was an issue in our line.

This is why I blame school counselors they push for college telling parents that kids won't have a decent life if they don't have a degree. Most of my friends whose kids have degrees are bartenders or work at sams club

Interestingly enough, there are several well paying jobs that only need an Associates Degree. Community colleges offer an abundance of courses in these careers and cost substantially less.
