Why don’t these young people go in the military first? Then you can go to college for way less. Also, what gives? Didn’t you need a degree in only certain fields years ago? Doctors, Lawyers, Accountants, positions of trust? What happened? Why does every living breathing person in America need a degree to be say, a secretary, or manager? Aren’t those positions where you would start at the bottom, work your way up, and gain the skills needed in a sort of apprenticeship role?
I didn’t go to college, I was a stay at home mom after marriage, prior, I worked my way up from an employee to a manager at a restaurant. Hubby went in the army, got HVAC training, and makes 53,000 a year (finally got another job after 4 months woo hoo). My oldest son, no college, he is a personal trainer for our city gym. Middle boy going to seminary next year, youngest not sure yet. What gives with all the college besides a money grab?
