Most parents tell their kids to go to school, study hard so they can get in a good college so they can get a high paying job. Not many of those jobs are manufacturing things like compressors or hand tools.
Yes this is true, but not everybody is cut out for college. That was not a problem in the past, you just got a good paying job in manufacturing or some type of trade and you would be fine. If those jobs all go overseas what are the non college kids supposed to do? I know go make $8/hr with no benefits at Chinafart (nice American lifestyle)
