You have to admire the audacity of the man. What with all the PC crap we ‘little people’ have to endure from the likes of the Nanny Bloomberg’s of the world, he has absolutely no problem saying, Hey, dummy, you ain’t no rocket scientist. Forget that college nonsense and get a job!
There may be some wisdom here. Unfortunately, it flies in the face of a liberal nanny state that has built out a college and junior college system based upon the myth that everyone needs a college degree just to work at McDonalds today. Ugh!
‘The people who are going to have the biggest problem are college graduates who aren’t rocket scientists, if you will, not at the top of their class,’ he said. New Yorkers are used to Mayor Bloomberg trying to nanny them with laws about soda sizes and smoking, but now the billionaire has taken to dishing out career advice.
Speaking on his weekly radio show on Friday, Bloomberg suggested that ‘so-so’ students might want to consider going to trade school and becoming a plumber as a better economic bet than obtaining an expensive undergraduate degree.
