Great video! Mike Rowe puts it perfectly into 5 minutes what I have been trying to articulate for a long time as a father of 4.
I've been adamant that trades are valuable. It is sick to see kids get their mind rinsed to believe a desk job is the holy grail, or the general attitude of disrespect toward "blue collar workers" (tradesmen).
My oldest daughter is graduating today. Shared it with her. She has an interest in refrigeration. There is never enough air con guys down here in the keys!
Oldest son (20yo) is moving into his new apartment today. Shared it with him. He has been working his way through college, but has no idea "what he wants to be when he grows up". Neither do I, and I'm doing just fine!
"I looked around to see where everyone else was headed, and then I went the opposite way." <- yup.
