I wouldn't go too hard on the guys (and girls) who want to go into the trades. They are needed, too, and there always seems to be a shortage of even decent ones, much less pretty good ones.

Not everyone is of high-tech, book-learning material anyway. . .sort of like how you described, in a more recent post, about how young people may need almost custom instruction.

Actually, I would still say such trades are knowledge work. Sometimes, when you are fixing something, it takes a bit of detective work to figure out the problem, and especially to figure out what the last guy who worked on it did!
