Yes because if everyone went and learned a 'trade' there would be jobs for everyone, right?

Except that not everyone is going to do that. Right?

Re: 50% of the College Grads Cannot Find Jobs...
i left school at 16 sat on my ass and got stoned for 2.5 years then started working on building sites as a laborer for 2 years then i got a an apprenticeship i am now 24 with six months left to go then i have a job for life in every country on the planet and even if i cant get a job in my trade i would sure get a job doing semi skilled work.

as for my friend Katie, stayed in school till she was 18 went to university for 4 years and got a law degree she now works at Marks and Spencers full time she would be better off now if she left school at 16 and went to work

true story
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25779450


Had to look up what Marks and Spencers was. It sounded like a law firm.LOL So she has a law degree and works in a department store. Why can't she at least get a job as a paralegal?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


Look at jdunderground.com or insidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com

It's about supply and demand and there are WAY too many crappy law schools just there to make a buck off a student.

Overpopulation. Look at all these fucking cars and traffic and pollution. Society is too far gone. This will continue until enough people are jobless that riots will begin, forcing the system to change. Until then, go drink some coffee and keep perpetuating the slave game.

I took a few college courses, then decided to become a Pharmacy Technician. Trained for 6 months in that trade,got my pharmacy technician certificate. I then worked in that field for 6 years before moving into the software industry getting a job where I was supporting Pharmacy software. Now I work from home supporting pharmacy software making 81K per year. I've been working in software support for 14 years. Love it.

How did you move into the software industry? Did you get a degree in computer science or take certain certificates and get trained on the job? Thanks.

This is the tragedy of the gutting of our manufacturing base, everyone cannot go into the hard sciences, everyone does not belong in college piling up debt upto thier eyeballs, a true tragedy, a whole population of people losing wealth faster than they can create it and a youth population not even having the chance to create it, it's not going to end well.

This debt-based,fractional reserve monetary system must go, the FED RES must be dissolved(by lawful means), the power of money creation must come back to we the people.

Decent job considering all the old people need more and more physical therapists.

Re: 50% of the College Grads Cannot Find Jobs...
Okay, I would like to clarify something. I received a negative karma from someone calling me a non-degreed idiot. Not that a fucking piece of paper means jack shit, but I must clarify for the sake of objectivity.

I hold a BS in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry and have heavy minors in physics and mathematics. I also have an associates of applied science in paramedic technology. And have worked on my Master's in both Chemical and Electrical Engineering.

Also, I want to be clear, I earned both degrees without federal financial aid with the exception of one student loan of 4000 that I paid years ago.

Both of the master's degrees I have pursued, I did so on my own, no help from Uncle Sam. I also hold certificates in welding, machining, masonry, carpentry and diesel engine repair. I earned these over the course of twenty plus years since I was sixteen!

I love to learn new skills, I love to read everything from SM Stirling to Homer, and I am frankly sick of hearing men tirade that they can't find jobs, and are 'too old', don't have time, or whatever reason to learn a new skill.

That's bullshit, you have time to watch mother fucking football, basketball, or MMA then you have time to learn a useful skill or take a class.

Votech courses are often free or very low cost, opencourseware may not grant a degree but you can learn, frankly it's a fuck excuse.

Skillet slap

Oh poor fucking baby, "I went to 'skewl' for Ancient Tahitian Sanskrit and no one is hiring." Furthermore, to be frank, the world needs another finance or business major like it needs another fucking lawyer!

Oh and I also have taken lots of Ag courses to learn to be a better rancher and farmer. I have a lot of free time because my business that I have busted my ass at takes care of itself, and the my ranch is a labor of love.

Someday's, I put in 16 hours on my ranch and sometimes, I'm gone for days with business. I also put in thirty hours a week homeschooling my son, and that is greatest job I do.

Oh, and here is a pic from my office window for anyone that wants to call me delude or full of shit.

The thread title is true.

I have a friend from MIT who also lives in MA. He is so over educated yet under employed.

His field of study is blocked by the government.

He has over a dozen alternitive fuel sources. Most of them are mechanical while his best are from chemical reactions from objects and liquids found in your local grocery or home!

No wonder he can't find a job, he is being silenced.
