 It's simple.  You want a high paying job?  Learn a skill that's worth

 Like machinist? Oh wait that job got ousourced, better train for
another one. Truck driver is good paying job, right? Uh oh, gas goes
up and the market will soon be flooded with Mexican drivers. Better
train again. Software engineer, four to six years of school should do
it. What? Those jobs are outsourced and the market is crowded. Back
for some more training. Now let's see, if I don't get sick and I
continue to pay my student loans I should be OK. Real estate agent
sounds good. Finish training and the market  goes bust! Boy am I
stupid I should have known better. Back to school. That one on the TV
sounds pretty good. Fourty thousand bucks, but they have financial
assistance and job placement. Only takes a couple of years. At the end
it wasn't such a good idea, many more dollars in debt and the market
is full of people just like me only wanting to work. Good thing there
are people who will tell me it is my fault; I might have thought it
was the system. Looking through the classified ads I see an ad for a
job, no experience needed, high earnings potential room to advance.
Well the creditors are at the door, my spouse is ready to to leave me
and the kids need school clothes. AND BETTER NO ONE TELL ME I NEED TO
