    It's wrong because you're an ignoramus.

    The problem: Some idiots thought a piece of paper can actually tell you that someone is qualified in place of a real work ethic.

    Does it matter how hard you work if you don't know what you are doing?

    Yes. Hard workers are easier to train for the specific job, no matter how much training you get prior the new job is always different. Hard workers tend to put quality over quantity and are more interested in getting it right instead of expecting more money for something than they are worth. Hard workers don't sit around during their work day typing on message boards unless they are self employed.

    Rab, thanks for your opinion. I will make one, too.

    I am making an educated guess (I crack myself up!) that those with higher education levels are losing their jobs at far less per capita averages than those without a high school degree, high school degree, or some college.

    Sure they are ... :cuckoo:

    Without the factory workers there is no company, without the company the "higher" educated workers have no jobs either. ;)

    I am unsurprised by this article, as there is a growing disconnect between the skills of the American workforce and the demands of the labor market. You can't throw a factory lineman into a clinical lab or a power plant and expect him to have any idea what he is doing, let alone perform well!

    Qualifications exist for a reason.

    I've had to go H1B to find qualified people since the 80s.

    There he goes, Jake, King of the Unsubstianted Statement. Another stinking pile of shit masquerading as a post.
    In fact seniority probably plays a much larger role than education level. That and the area of the economy someone works in.
