In 2016, we still value a college degree above a trade school graduate, and we’re not even subtle about it.I'm currently slightly more than half of my major (tourism, culinary arts & business administration) and will be finishing it by 2015.Afterward, I will resume my first former major, which was psychology and finish the 2 remaining years.Today, when white-collared women enter into relationships with blue-collared men, they are not merely dating – they are “dating down.” I can only speak for myself, but if were a college-educated woman, happily married to a skilled tradesmen, I might resent the suggestion that I had run out of better options.And if I were a plumber or an electrician, I might read this headline and got hot under my blue collar.
