Great idea. So many ways to make a living without spending $60,0000 on a year college tuition.
The Trades are LOOKING for new members. Ever watched “This Old House” on PBS all those folks are in the Trades and proud of it. Or you could be a lawyer.

As a licensed contractor, I tell people all the time to think about a trade career. Working for yourself is the best if both worlds if you can. And yes, This Old is making it obvious that there are not enough going into the field. Used to be that “to get a good job, you need a good education”. Not any longer. Plenty of highly educated dummies out there already.

I’m pretty sure they’ll be better off financially and mentally learning welding rather than gender studies.

One is unifying, the other is divisive.
Either way , to each its own.

You mean affirming the delusion that men are women isn’t helping us as a society?!

It’s good news! I also try to help students, so in my free time, I write for the Edubirdie platform and help students with their assignments. I know that https://ca.edubirdie.com/ is very popular, so I do my best to deliver an excellent result. I think that it’s cool when you can help someone who needs it.
