Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, master-craftsmen are pretty well paid here as well.  And I believe skilled tradesmen such as plumbers and electricians still make a nice living.  I have no idea how one gets into those trades, though.

When I was in school, if you weren't "academically inclined" they offered two vo-tech classes -- bricklaying and auto mechanics.  In the school district I live in, they currently offer welding and auto mechanics.  I believe there's also an off-campus computer networking class.  

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
