Kids getting out of college with a liberal arts degree or communications degree (etc) and $100K debt with no job are wondering WTF happened.
They think any kind of labor is beneath them. Any kind.
Fixing coke machines for $56K. He's 19. Brilliant!
And he's secure. In Canada there are waiting lists to get into trade school.
I remember when I was in university (back when dinasours roamed the earth) there were people who were about 10 years older than me working on their 3rd or 4th degree ... all BA type (French Studies and other ridiculous degrees). They fit in so nicely in the university culture that they never felt the need to leave (until mommy's & daddy's money runs out no doubt).
No kidding? Is there a lack of trade schools or so many young Canadians are seeing the light? Meaning they realize that degrees aren't always going to guarantee a job.
By trade schools do you mean simply construction/mechanical trades like plumbers, electricians, HVAC etc?
