    I can speak to this one.
    The wife and I have a “friend” with a MBA. She tried and got him a interview with a company, paid $58k.
    He turned it down. Deemed he was worth more, and should be getting paid six figures, at least middle if not upper management, despite having no real experience.
    Then he was all pissed off he could not find anyone willing to hire him under his conditions.

    Remember way back in the 80’s , when all the tech trade schools started popping up ? They were actually started by EMPLOYERS . The reason being that ” higher education ” were pumping out people that were , and apparently , still are , unemployable .

    We had an entire school district get rid of their shop equipment because the superintendent decided all kids would go to college.  How’s that for short-sightedness and stupidity?  I wonder how many of those kids are no on public support with their “college” degrees?

    Considering that most tradespeople that we deal with are trying very hard to put out the worst service possible and still get paid, I wonder about the viability of certain jobs.

    Today education is way too overrated… Of course, it does have its’ value and many specialties can only be learned in higher educational institutions (say, all medical professions). That being said, specialties like management and IT-sector can and should be studied on some quick courses (in my humble opinion). My opinion is based on the fact that so many students order homework and assignment help online. Personally, I don’t accuse anyone here and I work for an essay writing service myself, I just want to say that we receive more than a hundred requests from students searching for someone to write their essay here: . Written assignments can be done by anyone, the question is whether all students benefit from such education? What’s the point in giving degrees to thousands of “managers” when we don’t have enough… plumbers? I don’t mean to sound rude, I reckon that our society got obsessed with white-collar jobs instead of equal job distribution. Just look at these numbers: in 2018 is 19.9 million students were projected to get enrolled –https://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=372.

    It’s up to you to make your mind on this matter, I only shared mine.
