Investing in your working ability
January 20, 2016 6:37am CST
Parents in Asia worship education. However, they worship the wrong kind of education. They want their children to go to the universities and get a degree. They forget that working abilities are more important than a paper qualification. It is good to graduate in engineering and work as an engineer. However, many skilled trade workers do not have a degree, and they are paid more than graduates. For example, an underwater welder can earn a few hundred dollars per day. They are good in diving, and underwater welding. They have invested in their working abilities so that they can take up such challenging job.
