The Men, They Are A' Changing

In a post titled Relative Worth, Satisfaction and Fun, Say Uncle gets all, like, stern and stuff:
Am I a coldhearted bastard? No. This person has only a GED and no other particularly marketable skills. Kids today need to prepare themselves for this reality. My parents’ generation, for example, could get jobs right out of high school and be reasonably successful. My parents did. That’s not the case today. It wasn’t the case for me. If your only marketable skill is that you can lift heavy things, you’re career is time-limited and low-paying.
Cold, clear-eyed advice for the young. Unc, you sound like a father already.
