It sounds as reasonable as anything else I've read and I read a lot of this stuff...

Well I would just rather see an economy more based around good paying manufacturing(non union) jobs, rather than a bunch of people working at Wal-Mart and restaurants making minimum wage serving other people making minimum wage who are off work.

The thing that bothers me most is how the bar has been raised for the requirements to get a good job. I think it's a result of the exportation of lower end jobs to China and other places.

When I was in high school 10 years ago they all said, "to get a good job you need to graduate high school, and get at least an Associates degree". Well, I graduate high school and get the Associates Degree. Well, now you have to get a BS Degree, and have 200 years experience to get a good job, at least in the computer field.

I despise higher, higher, higher education, because it isn't. I decided to get some certifications instead of a BS Degree. My AS Degree with certifications and experience is better in my opinion, than someone who sat through a lecture from a pinheaded college professor lecturing about the oppression of midgets in India, set against the backdrop of frogs on a rainy day.
