I just had an interesting talk with my mechanic. He is in a rural area and is literally overwhelmed with work , people are not buying new - they need to keep the old stuff running. His problem is that he can't find any people that are willing to work. It's hard work, he describes it as, "Putting a 1,000 piece puzzle together everyday!" He has hired several people but the work is too hard and they just don't want to do it. He is a very easy going guy probably not a bad boss - why can't he find employees?
Auto Mechanics is hard dirty work but it will be in demand when the economy turns down. Certainly it would be a much better degree then say, "Diversity Studies".
What do you think?
