    I worked at an oil and chemical facility my entire career. I was an engineer who ended up running the place but many of my co-workers were blue collar technicians and maintenance workers. I retired five years ago and at that time I had quite a few high school graduate hourly workers making six figures and already being every day millionaires. Plus they had union protection, great benefits and were treated with respect by the engineers and accountants on my team. It was widely considered the best job in town and had no glass ceiling. We had two VP’s on my level without college degrees making multiple six figures who had worked their way up through the hourly ranks. The stress level of our hourly jobs was generally much lower than our managerial jobs as well. Blue collar work is a great choice on my opinion. Those men and women were highly trained and highly skilled professionals in my opinion.
