    Since I became a driver life is good. Appreciate what you have, you high paid, non-college bastards. End.

    Why go to college now...it doesn't guarantee you a decent paying job...but let's you go into debt for thousands of dollars... And btw there are probably more drivers with a college education than you realize.... Especially the older ones who had to wait many years to go driving... Not these kiddos who waited 10 months sound familiar baby girl???

    Same here, 2 degrees. It pays a lot more to be a driver.

    One of my sons graduated from Georgia Tech with an Aerospace Engineering degree a couple of years ago and still hasn't got a job in that field. The Air Force and Navy are full of people trying to get into Officer's Candidate School, no luck there either. My older brother joined the Pipefitters/plumbers union and works for GM making six figures a year, go figure.

    Can't you say the same with just about any job? Even pro sports players get tired of doing their "dream" job.

    Sorry to hear that. People do need to refocus on the trades. Ever wonder why it costs a fortune to get a plumber or electrician to make a house call? Not enough of them. Supply and demand.

    That French poetry degree isn't going to pay well. Nor is that bachelor's in holistic medicine

    Nope. Mine is in industrial design. This still pays a lot more.

    If my kid doesn't really know what they want to do no doubt I'll point them towards the trades.
