If You’re Good In The Trades and Don't Mind Working...

  1. Being a picker of nits ... The header should have stated -You're- rather than -Your- .. the former is You Are, the latter is possessive. Yeah, I'm a part-time grammar geek and a bit of a pedantic jerk. Two thumbs up for the crowd who follows Mike Rowe and his "get back to work" initiatives.

    2. I get it. And spell checkers often don't catch stuff like your/you're or my favorite there/their/they're ..

    3. My best one was incompetence replaced with incontinence by spell check. The reciever read what I meant. When I actually saw it I called her and we laughed 'til we cried...

  2. Jay Leno has also endowed scholarships at automotive tech schools.

    I could have finished College and been a white-collar worker, but that just isn't "me". I'd rather be out in the field repairing stuff or installing new stuff than sitting in an office all day!

  3. "...and Don't Mind Working"
    If you don't mind working, you should do great in my class, and I know you would be successful later on in life.

  4. I train people-mostly guys-for a trade in a mechanically and now electronically controlled operations position. I loved working in the industry and fell into teaching only by accident. I am (by today's standard) a "tiny" 115 lb female. I also pent 6 months working the business end of a McCulloch chain saw in the 80's and even had a paper route. I tried the Secretarial thing for a while, couldn't stand working with the catty women.

    God Bless the hard working and incredibly knowledgable men (and the women who can do it) working in the trades. I am not referring to the women who won't lift, do the work, sweat ALOT, get REALLY filthy and take and dish out the crap with the rest of "the guys" on the job without a smile on their faces.

    I used to grocery shop at 11:00 PM, on my way home, filthy and stinky from work. I would get looks from dressed up "Professionals" and look right back at them thinking -yep, and I probably make more than you do. (Plus, 98% of them would be unemployed without my industry and the people in it!)

  5. I teach Welding and Metals at a local hi skewl and I have 5 students I taught that are making 10 grand more a year to start than I make as a teechor. I am perfectly fine with this, in fact I am very proud of those kids.

  6. Our steel mill has workers with 3rd to 6th grade educations that earn over 150K per year, with full medical and benefits. Liberals and milliniums think working is being a 8 dollar an hour coffee server and writing names on coffee cups.
