    The big push that everyone must go to college, starting 40 years ago has gone overboard: resulting in trillions of student debt. loaned by a society that doesn't have money, to kids who will never pay it back, for jobs that dont exist

    Meanwhile, 3 million top dollar jobs go unfilled, because our culture has taught kids that skilled labor...any labor is dirty and undignified

    First of all, too many dumb people are going to college.

    Explain how "our culture has taught kids that skilled labor is dirty and undignified?" A lot of my friends

    Look at the evidence....college has priced itself out of affordability. I see tons of kids with degrees flipping burgers

    I also have several blue collar dope friends who have never wanted for work...and make mad scrilla.

    A kid joining the IBEW apprentice program in NY right now, out of high school will out earn 90% of people in this country in coming years

    I should have stayed in the military. I would have made way less money but I think I would have been happier.
