To Barry from NTC: given the rash of layoffs bec. of budget cutting in the last few years, what makes you think the guy (or gal) in the corner office ISN'T also buffing the floors, and maintaining the machine -- all on just one salary for the CEO to be putting on the books? Granted: the corner office worker is probably not MAKING the buffer machine :-) That's being done by the crew in Mexico or the Philippines who have the skills bec. the US CEO took his $$ overseas in order to invest in them.

Latest job creation numbers, 115,000.
Numbers graduating this year, 3 million.
You do the math.
If everybody gets a four year academic degree they become worthless.
Nobody wants to work blue collar anymore and that's what built the middle class. Everyone can't be in the corner office. Someone needs to buff the floors. And make the buffer machine. And maintain the buffer machine.

If you are Catholic, ask yourself if you are called to a vocation to the sisterhood or priesthood or brotherhood.
