Since college has tended too often to cause a lot of arguments between father and son on account of money and all of that, isn't it a better deal for parents to lean more toward high school and/or learning a skill such as plumbing instead of college? Here is the reasoning behind this logic: First, there are many jobs that one can get with just a high school diploma, especially if they are single. An actual list of jobs that one can get with a high school diploma would be too long to list, but just to name a few are as follows: Jobs in a hotel (front desk clerk, room service, housekeeping, or whatever) with the opportunity to work their way up, Jobs in a grocery store (produce department, cookie isles, milk and dairy product department, box boy, cashier, sacker, or whatever) with the opportunity to work their way up, Hospital cafeteria cashier and/or the one that delivers the meals to the patients in the hospital. Finally, I heard that the requirements to become a licensed plumber is to work 8,000 hours under the direct supervision of a licensed plumber and general supervision of a master plumber, while the apprentice is getting paid for on the job training. After getting paid for working for 8,000 hours, they just pay a small fee ($600.00 tops) to take a few classes. Isn't it a big difference between "paying a lot more money to learn" and "getting paid to learn"? Additionally, once they become a licensed plumber, there is so much they can do. They can stand out in The Plumbing Department at Lowe's, Home Depot, or other home improvent stores. They can contribute to and set up the plumbing for houses and businesses that are being built for the first time. They can work in a Pool And Spa Store. Finally, they can open up their own Pool And Spa Store and own it. Thank you.
