We Should Have Become Plumbers
"Can you believe $34 an hour for an electrician, when EP Slime is paying licensed attorneys with 7 years of education $21 an hour? Face it kids, law was, and is, the biggest "education" mistake a person can make. Blue collar jobs like welding, plumbing, and electrical contracting have double-lapped law in terms of pay. Shitlaw gutter insurance defense sewers pay cesspool wages of 35-45 K, no health benefits, and zero pension/retirement. And to enter this "prestigious" gutter industry one must pay subhuman, lying scum like the Valvoline Dean and Joan King 120 K!
New York currently has one lawyer for every 125 people. By 2012, it will be more like one for every 50 people. Wages are plunging, benefits are non-existent, and law is a miserable, dead-end make work slop job. Here's to hoping that the next generation of high school grads avoid the "education" racket altogether and lead productive lives doing productive things like trades, not worthless paper-churning makework shit-jobs like law."
Any of the "hang a shingle" losers care to chime in? Hanging a shingle is the desperate, fantastical pipe dream of every 40 K a year insurance defense slob or pathetic JD shitlaw document coder. Here's a newsflash - solo attorneys are on the way out everywhere. Personal injury is fucking dead thanks to tort reform, real estate closings are long gone, and any moron with more than a 2nd grade reading level can make their own will w/ legal zoom for 1/3 what a desperate shitlaw solo would charge.
The outlook for the legal industry is so fucking grim it's comical. Even biglaw, the fucking kings of congressional bribery and reams of make work paper churning are feeling the pain. Get ready for some Ivy-league document coders and Harvard-educated no-fault shitlaw "associates" at gutter courts like King's Civil in Brooklyn!"
