If university is free for Germans, why don't workers get a university degree and a clerical job?

Assuming that manual workers are disregarded is wrong in most of Europe. Not everyone wants to go to college because not everyone wants to spend another decade of their life watching a professor speak and talk about terrifyingly fascinating abstract topics with exactly zero application to life outside of college.

Assuming that manual workers are disregarded is wrong in most of Europe. Not everyone wants to go to college because not everyone wants to spend another decade of their life watching a professor speak and talk about terrifyingly fascinating abstract topics with exactly zero application to life outside of college.

Look, I went to college and got my degree, but when I started working for a bank, I was surrounded by people who hadn't been to college and knew about budgets, accounts, finances ... Not exactly the top of the line. priority list in English. Literature / Linguistics / History. So basically I have a Masters. Wow. I am so impressed with myself that I can open a drawer and admire the certificate. Has this ever helped me in my professional life?

No. Not once. Now, I'm not saying that a college degree is useless. Only for many people, it is just a sheet of paper. You leave university as a theoretical expert on something that is not required as a professional qualification (unless you study a subject of direct application such as law, medicine, etc.).

My son is perfectly intelligent, but he has chosen not to go to university, but to formally train as a cook and become a Sous-Chef and (perhaps later) Chef. That is your aspiration, and you will have a national professional qualification for that.

An exclusively academic workforce sounds like a waste of time. I have seen departments that consist entirely of academics ... There is a lot of talk and not much real work is done, often. You need people to do things as well as theorize about it ... If you look down on people with professional qualifications, like mechanics, who will fix your car? When your toilet overflows, will you call in a qualified and trained plumber or philosopher?

The answer to your question is that here, many young people want to learn how to do a specific job or work in a particular area that appeals to them. They don't need to learn how to write articles about it. They need to acquire practical knowledge to do that job well and successfully. And that is valuable to us.

> Why don't workers get a college degree and a white collar job?

  • The German "workers" are working on their hobby!
  • German "white collars" are working for their specific hobby!
  • Also in their social system, they chose to have a social balance, so none of them are left begging for food / health.

Have you heard of "Do what you love"? The German "system" encourages that for the most part. Furthermore, their "social system" does not penalize / impoverish a person based on their beloved profession. And its "tax system" helps that social system.

Basic education -> Explore a specialization -> Company internships

Basic education -> Explore a specialization -> Internships in a company just to "prove to yourself" that that's the career you like -> complete that specialization -> market. There are also turning points if one "realizes" that the profession x is not to your liking, without much penalty.

Because people have the freedom to end their beloved career (work becomes a hobby). Obviously you get better insight / creativity if your hobby is day work. You don't even need a vacation! :P

Unfortunately, the recent influx of immigrants will be a great challenge. The religious ideology of the incoming people is anti-other, also the attitudes are like 'let's swallow the khafirs'! Let's multiply! Let's move on to the khafirs! It is not the attitude of contributing to the society that welcomes us.

To find out their religious ideology and attitude towards Khafirs, ask the Christians / Jews / Yazidis / others who live / ed among them in their homeland. Also ask Hindus / Christians who lived among Muslims in Pakistan.
