The longer I live, the more I believe that there are way too many college graduates nowadays. At some point in the past century it became a need to go to University, whether or not it suites the vast majority of the population. Instead of only the most exceptional candidates earning degrees, every dummy has some sort of advanced education. Not only has it created this giant student debt crisis, I think it is unfair to future generations. Everyone has a big degree in accounting, engineering, or business; but who is going to deliver the other services that every one of us need to survive? Is anyone learning a trade anymore?
Last year I had to call a heating & cooling specialist because our a/c was making a real racket. When I thumbed through the phonebook, I found that there were few possibilities for local Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning dealerships in the area. I called to schedule the appointment, and the desk clerk at the heating & cooling repair shop told me that they had a limited number of ventilation servicemen on hand. All of their cooling plan specialists were booked for at least a week. When I called around to the other 3 heating & cooling shops, they all told me a similar story.
Once our AC machine was finally repaired a few weeks later, the total cooling repair cost was huge! After all of these observations I’m just figuring there must be a solution. If we could divert a fraction of these college-bound youngsters to Heating & A/C technical school, maybe we could revolutionize the ventilation field for the better.
