Mike Rowe has been talking about this for years. Kids are shamed if they don’t go get a 4 year degree and $300k+ of debt. Yet the trades are paying well, and are in demand.
No, the trades aren't paying well, at least for those trying to get into them, and they aren't offering training, either. They're being replaced by skilled migrant workers who don't need training and won't stick around if something goes wrong.

That's the problem: No training path unless you have a family connection or similar. And no retirement path for those who worked their bodies to the bone.

They put all the risk of a degree on those kids, and for-profit certification mills were trying to do the same for the trades - but everyone already treats those certificates as trash so it didn't go anywhere.

🤷‍♀️

We just need more willingness to pay and provide real training. Not just saddle kids with debt on bets that may never pay off.

United and other Airlines are starting apprentice programs. The A&P mechanic tops out at over 115k a year. Starting is around 45k. Apprentices will get paid for 2-3 years, about 35k/year, this qualifies them to take the test and move into the pay progression at the 2 year mark that is 65k/year. There is a huge shortage in A&P mechanics and with the projected growth in the industry this will only get worse.
I have been here 35 years this January. While there have been some serious ups and downs in the last 4 years it has been doing pretty well. We have been thru hell several times, but it seems that have found a path to profitability and stability, at least for now...

Yes, things will take place and evolve in this new technology. The gaps will be filled to improve the service and all the departments that result from it.
The training will be done professionally and paid at full value with consistent updates due to the speed of technical developments inherent to technology!!!!! ;) 🤙
