Your Future in the Sewers - And, No, I'm Not Kidding
For a short couple of years, I worked in a sewer plant (now called a wastewater treatment plant), finally as the chief operator. As much as that form of employment makes one the butt of jokes (pun intended), it was an interesting and not unrewarding form of employment - at least not altogether.
As a result, I still get work-related magazines in the mail, and I still pick them up and see what may be of interest. I found a surprising statement that should not have been surprising, but in view of today's economic times, it was. In fact, it made me laugh.
It suggested young people could hope for a real future in the sewers! Now the pay isn't too bad, and it seldom gets boring, but what was the source of the statement that made it so great? The argument why was because,
THERE IS NO JOB OUT-SOURCING. Jobs stay right here. (Yes, we've got our *#& @^$ together.)
