Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We treat engineers like shit in USA.  Even the engineers who work for the military-industrial complex are considered the scum of the earth.  My brother-in-law was an engineer for Boeing during the SPEA strike.  He walked picket lines with some of the best rocket scientists on earth.  What they discovered was that it took folks like the teamsters to actually help them and that truckers and rocket scientists had the same problems.

I recently read the Enzo Ferrari would have rather been known as engineer than commander.  There are countries on earth where folks brag that they are engineers by insisting their designation is included in their mailing addresses.

See if you ever see THAT in good old USA.
