New Warsaw Pact Regional Message Board
I'm 26. The reason I had to get a GED was because I started homeschooling in 6th grade and that fell apart within a year and I never reached high-school. There are a few training programs that I'm interested in that an employment agency will pay for but right now I don't have the money to keep driving to them and back to home since they're located out of town and I have to have a job first. It also doesn't help that I'm mostly stuck looking for jobs in town.
hmmm.... well apparently the school season is starting back up, see if you can hook a job as an assistant custodian or groundskeeper or something at your local schools.
WWII might be a more apt comparison seeing as Putin is already drawing parallels...
To be fair, GEDs are just as good as a diploma in almost all cases. What I am seeing is an over-education of the population. If 60% of the population have a bachelor's degree where only 30% of jobs actually need one, job prospects for the... non-degreed get much worse. When I was managing the production floor at the machine shop I work at, (I stepped down so I would have the time to go back to school,) we were hiring people with degrees right along with those that didn't for the same, unskilled labor jobs. A couple of them even had masters degrees. It was kind of depressing to see, and it was the primary discouragement for me to finish my degree.
Well yeah, the problem is employers look at your education, and if they gotta choose between the dude with the GED or the dude with the high school diploma (or higher) hes gonna pick the one with more education, unless the one with the GED has had a lot of job experience, and has good references.
Is Internet so expansive in the US or were do you live?
Amen. Nothing wrong with getting a college degree but if you want to pursue something like auto mechanics you don't need one. We've somehow pushed apprenticeship and manual trades that don't require degrees into shameful territory when those very trades are fundamentally necessary to Western culture.
I'd call it over-qualification, rather. I don't think any individuals nor the whole would lose out from greater knowledge and understanding among the masses, but the insistence of the west on quantifying education with this or that certificate and such, coupled with the constant need of each successive government to say "Look, we're making the children smarter than they were under the previous government!" has indeed led to a situation where there are too many suitable candidates rather than too many jobs.
Mind you, there's certainly something to be said for avoiding the debt if you don't need it - since I apparently didn't already say that.
