From what I've observed a good percentage of them are basically useless.
I'm guessing there was a good percentage of our forefathers that were saying the same thing about our generation
I occasionally meet some of my son's coworkers and all speak highly of his skills and abilities... even some of the crew that are nearly my age. I know you do some welding in your shop... I'm curious how you'd do working 250-275 feet up in the air though
I know I prefer my feet on the ground (or at least a lot closer to the ground)!!! And it's not just him either... they've got a whole crew of guys (even a few gals) that do that every day.
This is just another case of the news the 'few' making tainting the sentiment about an entire generation.
I know several of the people my oldest daughter works with and all of them are always commenting on her work ethic. I doubt there are many of us 'old guys' that could keep up with her pace all day and manage to do it safely, year after year.
