2. Plumbers, bricklayers, and electricians make beaucoup bucks
Union and non-union. How many of your friends have taken the trade up? Relatives? Neighbors? Except these people don't understand how hard they worked to earn that money. They bitch about plumbers until the toilet breaks, and then fuck up the installation of the toilet they bought from Home Depot.

It IS an image problem, people have this image that blue-collar workers don't deserve to make the money they do or as much as the white collar snobs who look down on them. We're put on the same level as slaves, elevator operators, cleaning people, and garbage men (who make dynamite money and ARE controlled by the Mob, why do you think every garbage company has an Italian name?) who work picking up the filth of the snobs.
