As trades worker the golden calf is a lie
@wolfman69, this is going to keep me up at night.
So what is a trades worker?
And what is the golden calf you speak off?
@wolfman69, a big one too
I start trade school tomorrow.
Get a degree for something that actually has jobs.
@CrazyRightWinger, did, computer technology. Did hands on work to get experience for free too. Am now too under or over qualified for most entry level tech jobs, welcome to my hell.
@RevenantofAshes , I have a two year degree in computer information systems and worked at a repair place for a long time now I'm working for a hospital making good money and about to move to network engineer. You have to find the right place.
@CrazyRightWinger, been trying. Managed to get on at a repair place but got into a wreck and lost that job. Haven’t been any openings where I can start again yet since then. Sometimes the place takes longer to find. Especially when you’ve moved to a smaller city to marry the one you fell in love with.
@RevenantofAshes , my city is so small we have no stores and two stop lights no excuses
@CrazyRightWinger, Wow, way to live up to your name.
@RevenantofAshes , I did computers, graduated 20+ years ago. Despite my skills I couldn't get a job in it because "girls don't do that". Went back to school for pharmacy. Suboxone pays the rent, man
@mattswife, I'm lining up to become a pharmacist myself. Do you enjoy it?
@Nyxa, I was a pharmacy tech, had to go to school and work and raise a kid, it was easier/faster. The only thing you need to know, no matter what you do in pharmacy - chain is soul-sucking and independent will make you feel like you truly make a difference in the world. I absolutely loved it, had to quit when my knees gave out and I couldn't do 8 hours on my feet anymore. Just be prepared that it's 10% drug stuff and 90% insurance bullśhit (I'm assuming you're from America because you didn't say chemist)
@mattswife, Nice catch! I am American, yes. And thank you for the advisement. I'll be sure to invest in aleve.
What hurts most people is the fact that they are unwilling to relocate to find that good job.
They never said get a degree in gender studies at a private university
Or or or dont get a useless degree
Work at a warehouse, I make damn near $19/hr and all I do is put things in a box
@Elmato, dafuq kinda warehouse you in? I worked at a warehouse/retail and made 11/hr. And I operated machinery and lifts, trained people on lifts and machinery, fixed broken shjt all the time, and set racks and worked my fvçking a$$ off for that place.
BTW Know your worth kids.
@mas2de, staples warehouse. The boxes are on a conveyor and you just need to be fast and fill said boxes
@Elmato, well that's a hell of a pay for that kind of job. Congrats.
Push the anti-vaxxer agenda, that way at least your children should be able to have jobs.
