It’s interesting. We see this everyday, but our high schools are dropping their shop and metals programs. Tech schools are full of classes for computers and dental assistants. High School counselors never discuss tech programs with students. Parents don’t want their kids to get “dirty” manufacturing jobs. Yet wages for these people are substantially higher than the fields these kids are being steered into. Jeff, you are right (boy did that hurt to say), we as a society like to blame everyone else.
Many liberal politicians conspire in this effort as well as continued promises of wealth transfer and personal bailouts from our federal government in exchange for votes has undermined the very people the liberals call their constituents while at the same time bankrupting our federal government.
