Lets dissect this: So you get more skills at the cost of going to school. In return you expect to be rewarded with a job that pays pretty well. In the
past that was how it worked. Now, you go to school, incur that debt, enter the job market and employers are telling you they only want to pay you $10
per hour for your skills. Your skills which 10 years ago assured you $50 per hour.
I already gave up on your last post...That is why I said you win... You sound very young... I have no reason to win or loose...
To dissect first you must understand that school does not equate to skill. You go to school to get an education you work to get skills. You must start
with one or the other, or get one or the other sometime early in your life. By the time you are mid 30s you better have both....AND NOW YOU ARE JUST
That is the first step to success....SHHhhh don't tell anyone....especially the 99%ers who got all that skill in college.
Day one out of college into a 100k per year job? Even for a engineer, lawyer, doctor etc ..that is funny. The problem is EVERYONE now has a degree in
bla bla bla that is worth zero well ok worth a little more than a high school degree. You drink the cool aid and get 50k in debt with the promise from
YOUR SCHOOL there will be a great job waiting for you with the crappy degree they give you...there is no great job, so once again who is at fault the
employer or the school, or you since you believed their crap without actually looking to see if there are jobs waiting?
The funny part is if you went the other route and worked as a plumber's apprentice making low wages for two years AND did a good job you would have
that nice job...see that skill education thing again? So now you're a plumber for 10 years and you want your own company and so you work on a business
degree and you get it and your own plumbing company.....see how the education/skill thing works down the road? As I said you just started and the rest
is all on your shoulders to succeed.
You tell them screw them, and they say SCREW you! They CAN find someone who will do that job you qualify for and only pay them $10 per hour! So here
you are unemployed AND with additional debt!
I can't imagine what job skills you have that can't be outsourced. Give it time and it will....
Why hire you for 50 when I can get a high schooler for 10 AND DO JUST AS GOOD OF A JOB AS YOU CAN!
I do understand your point, I really do....but we must give companies an incentive to pay you more...why should they pay you more? Why are you worth
more...is also the question? What do you provide to the company for 50 per hour that they do not get from the 10 per hour person?
At some point it is on you to make yourself valuable to the market.
I have about 25 years of training along with my education and you walk in with just education...how are you going to do my job for less?
