Not interesting in spending $80k+ on a 'Genders Studies' degreee, only to make $25k per year in a stupid desk job.

FOOLISH. Sadly our youth in too many cases are not trained for the simplest of tasks, like using a screwdriver.
Or taking apart a bike, maybe patching a tire tube? Or putting gas into a lawnmower.
Or actually cutting the grass. Painting a fence. SWEEPING out the garage.
Picking up the plates from the dinner table and properly stacking and setting them along with the utensils.
It all starts at home.
Too many homes have no start button.
Damn right it's been made in to a class thing. Too many times people in my industry look down at mechanics and the likes since they have little to no school. Truth is I know math and design better than most of my guys but they know what it takes and what works on paper but won't in real life.

A few people I know have kids trying to get into Harford Tech High up where I live. I went through Harford Tech YEARS ago... me and all my friends got in no problem. I guess it's a little more difficult now with more population/more interest.

It's meant to be a jab at people of a certain age.

My son learned to weld to build his truck, He had to replace his cab corners and floor boards of his 79 chevy K10. He really likes it and is looking into getting his certification so he will have a summer job during college. Right now his #1 school is Colorado school of Mines and #2 is university of Alaska Fairbanks since all the mechanical engineers can get welding certs with their degrees. He toured other schools and they didn't offer hands on experience. I think if we could get more kids to try it they would like it. We regularly have a handful of teenagers in the barn welding all kinds of crap from bumpers to mothers day gifts. The welds may not be pretty but they are happy to tell you they fixed the plow, boxblade ect.

I'm going to guess it's an insult/parody/meme for baby boomers. Millennials love it but they associate anyone over 35 years old as a "boomer"

Not to further detail the thread, but Iím 35. Does that categorize me as a boomer, or a millennial?

But back on topic: A certified welder with a strong work ethic, and certs or worthwhile proven experience in multiple disciplines and exotic metals can find a great paying job anywhere.

Ive been a welder for over 28 years, my Dad started my brother and i young,, to have a trade, be good at it and support yourself and your family, Contruction and welding has been good to me,, some years over 100k but it takes hard work and dedication to hone your craft. there are still some young guys out there that want to learn the trade and craft. i work with a few and teach them all i can.
