My take Lenny, for what it’s worth, is that there is no longer a limit to what people can be offended by.

This man understands.

If you haven't watch Mike's interview on the high cost of college yet, please do so. It's an amazing interview.

Work hard and smarter.

He starts the interview off with a lie. There is no true skills gap. It's a myth. Much like the gender pay gap.

What they found out when they actually did some research was that the companies saying they couldn't find people were all paying terrible wages. Pretty much like: "yes we wanted electricians but they are only worth 11 dollars and that's all we'll be paying them thank you. Now why is it so hard to find people?"

Edited that mess of a comment.

This needs more attention, as it's a huge problem in our country. It's not that we lack people to do the trades, we lack companies that have the integrity to pay a worthwhile wage. Who wants to do a twenty dollar an hour job for ten bucks an hour?

So much this! I'm a HW/SW dev and I've just got up and walked out of interviews where the initial offer was so ridiculously low it wasn't even worth trying to negotiate. (one company actually offered me just under $25k/yr no benefits for a python dev job requiring experience)

No doubt. He reduced her viewpoint to a feeble pile of juvenile beliefs.

His Ted talk on hard work was an epic display of a solid work ethic. That man should be the one running for president.

Hopefully the truck driving profession he mentioned won't be around in 5 years.

What exactly would it be replaced with? Automation?
