Tech Employment

I was reading a piece by a guy that was arguing that instead of sending little Johnny to college for 4 year to get a mountain of debt and a useless liberal arts degree, send him to a tech school or apprenticeship program. His reasons...
Quote:
The first is that by 2026 the Labor Department projects that the tech sector will see over 557,100 job openings. The second, from a recent report released by Dell Technologies found that 85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 have not yet been invented.
Besides IT techs, plumbers, electricians, HVAC Techs, anyone who can do repairs as well as built new stuff is going to be in demand. My buddy has 8 non-union plumbers working for him making over $100k every year.

Anyone can fix something with little education. That is not what companies need - keep asking for. Many small businessmen says the same thing. One needs no education to get these jobs. They will even train one. The biggest problem cited constantly by peers who own companies - employees don't always show up.

What is the #1 requirement today for a job? That the employee will arrive, as expected, every day.

In so many previous generations, I never heard this stated so often.

...and not be off their face on something. This is what we face at the grocery store. They don't show up, and if they do, there's a fair chance they're not actually fit to work. Many of them are trained in trades where they could be earning a whole lot more but.......
