What’s Wrong with Plumbing?

For some reason, American youth think that the only route to success is college—the problem is, many aren’t cut out for it and, once they get through, there aren’t a bunch of jobs waiting for them.

On the other hand, there are openings and demand in the skilled trades arena: plumbers, welders, electricians, manufacturing maintenance, etc.

If people think they are “too good” for these jobs, I suggest you take a look at the salaries they are making, the job security they enjoy, and the opportunity to work with your hands and actually see what you’ve done.
