Not all people have the ability either financially or intellectually to go to college, and I believe that a carpenter's work, for example, is just as important to society as a lawyers or a phucking baseball players...yet we don't pay them enough to make ends meet, let alone prosper." ------------------------------------------------- Do you guy's have a college degree? Not sure why having a college degree exempts anyone from what's is going on in the job market? Working class to me means anyone that works, i do not take points away because they have decided to further their education. Modernization has taken away jobs and we all know that this will increase. All those jobs you list have plenty of college educated people working in the industries and plenty that are in the unemployment lines also. Many of these workers do not even show up on the unemployment stats, because they can not get unemployment any more. Sure it pisses us off, but most goes back to how are government allows their special interest groups to control, big money talks and gov. listens. - [/QB][/QUOTE]
