What has really happened is that years of libturd indoctrination starting in public grade school, encourages kids to feed their upline libturd professors in the colleges. This has led to shortages in the trades because our children that might normally opt for trade school, are made to feel inferior if they don't go to college! The bravest of these students, tell these narcissists to pound sand and go their own way. Sadly, too many students are not suited for college, struggle there, then end up dropping out. I don't want to brag, but I have one year of college. I started my own company at 27, employ 12 full time and 6 part time employees. I do very well and so do my employees who can look at my books at any time.
