The average salary of a journeyman plumber is higher than the average salary of a college graduate.  Plumbers are currently still working.  Along with carpenters, long distance truck drivers, and electricians.

Doesn’t it take a few years post apprenticeship to become a journeyman plumber and passing the exam?  Apprenticeships are usually 3-5 yrs for most crafts....

True about the time.  Still doesn't change the fact on average they make more.  Exception being long distance truck drivers.

A college education isn't the end all.

I'm pretty sure this is a Gen Z thing but the hashtag #HU24 on social media looked like Spelman. Young males just are not seeing HBCU's as an option as in years past. :shrug:

Males are not seeing college as an option period. I work at a large PWI with a student enrollment of around 35% male.

You took the words out of my mouth. IT's not just HBCUs, it's college in general. The large public university that I work at in California, you are hard pressed to see Black male students.............unless they're on our basketball team.
I am now on Facebook! Come check me out...

Where did you get an argument from?  I clearly stated facts.  Your Bama education is showing.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
