A real pro waiter can pull down anywhere from 2 grand a week to 4 grand.
    So where are they going to get the $20,000 or $30,000 it cost for trade school or community college? What are they going to do with a degree in a field that is being outsourced or automated like computer science or accounting? If they worked 30 years as a skilled machinest in a factory that moves to Mexico what are they going to do? Heck even the bakers got hit.
