The companies used to train employees, schooling for those jobs is not necessary most times. It only takes about a month or two on the job to learn
the ropes. The training in school is a waste of times most times except maybe some of the specialist training centers, college is not needed for most
factory jobs. But the people in education want us to think that it is necessary, they want their paychecks.
Our countries way out of whack with it's present beliefs. I would have not hired a person who went to college in building trades when I had my
company running. I had a few people that did and their idea of how to build was not my quality, they went by industry standards and those minimums
were not even in my vocabulary. I liked to build things overbuilt and I liked to use materials that I knew personally were of good quality, I did not
accept some of the certifications as being evidence of good quality. So I had problems with a few people I worked with, they bought into some
knowledge that was not acceptable to me.
I trained my guys to work, from experience I knew that hiring someone with a degree would just mess things up, they seem to think they know
everything. Put it this way, I worked for one guy who taught this stuff, he hired me because of my reputation and was amazed at how much I knew. My
knowledge of things usually blows away what is taught in school because I know many professions. I wasn't going to buck heads with someone coming out
of college. If I owned a factory I would never hire a person with a degree except to maybe do a few specialized jobs.
