After decades of government propaganda and college universities telling young Americans that in order to be successful, they must get a four-year degree, the data has now proven that to be incorrect. As of right now, there are at least 30 million jobs that will pay $55,000 a year open in the United States, and they don’t require a college degree.
Trades have been the bread and butter of many Americans for centuries. But in the past few decades, the government has been pushing college degrees, getting students to take out more money in the form of government loans for school, and making billions of dollars on the interest. But those jobs don’t pay any more than a trade and a tradesperson won’t start their life off with hundreds of thousands of dollars in government debt for a piece of paper. Students and their parents no longer ask what that college degree is worth anymore – they just do as the society and the government has programmed them to do.
According to PBS, so much effort has been put into encouraging high school graduates to go to college for academic degrees rather than for training in industrial and other trades that many trade fields face worker shortages. Because of the shortage, California is spending $6 million on a campaign to revive the reputation of vocational education, and $200 million to improve the delivery of it.
