You know, become teachers. Work for the community. Be social workers. Be a nurse. Those are the careers that we need, and were encouraging our young people to do that.
Some factoids for Michelle:
- School teachers in our district average $59K per year. There are hundreds of applicants everytime there is an opening. Most of the time, the district doesn't even advertise the openings because the deluge of applications would be so large. Meanwhile, local factories have trouble recruiting machinists, partly because they don't want to hire anyone over 40.
- Nursing schools are filled to the gills and very competitive to get into. My daughter is worried that her mere A- average won't cut it.
- Could either of the above problems be because we have ninnys like you forcing taxpayers to subsidize colleges who train future Marxists, community organizers and women's study majors but can't tell which end of a rectal thermometer to insert?
Consider also if your minions have your way, there will be even more kids going into professions which consume tax dollars so there will be even fewer to earn the money to pay for them.

Try getting into the ILA (Longshoreman’s Union) at any east coast port. You start at $70K, plus OVERTIME. Great work, if you “know somebody.”

I tell my son to find a career where you make money if the factory leaves America or comes to America. Globalism and free trade will destroy sense of country and reduce workers to the status of commodity like raw materials, and finished products which flow in and out of borders (which will disappear over time).

Right on V-man.
In my school dist. the average pay is over $90,000. And the benefits are out of this world fantastic, way better than the private sector.
