I had a director of a manufacturing company tell me that 'engineers are not core business for us' and 'engineers are an overhead'

When i was a young apprentice one of our lecturers told us we would all be weathy because he saw the skills gap back in the 80s

He didnt see all the business folding or moving overseas, or the companies looking for techs taking on anyone who knew what a spanner was for, rather than a skilled person, to keep rates down

I get sent job ads for what i was earning 20 yrs ago so pay is stagnant
