1) We need to make engineers work with their hands so they understand reality and appreciate the skills of mechanics, electricians, and trades. I made all my engineers do startups and help with panel building. If they didn't want to do that, I didn't want them on my payroll.

2) We need to restore apprenticeship programs so that the technicians can do the job.

3) We need to have society respect good, honest work and pay accordingly. That applies to technicians, teachers, welders - a whole spectrum of professionals. Why should a social worker with marginal real world impact get more money than the people that keep our civilization running?
