It's pretty understandable, if you've seen what college courses outside the realm of science and engineering are like these days. If you're over 50, the high school courses you had were considerably more rigorous than today's undergrad courses, and I don't mean just the freshman level ones.
If you hire someone with a liberal arts BA or social science BS now, you're getting about what your father got when he hired a high school graduate.

It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

Graduated a 1 year technical school, online classes so I could stay on my parents insurance since Tricare is government insurance they're exempt from the 26 age limit unless you're in school, in December of 2012 started applying to every entry level job I could find. I prayed, prayed and prayed some more and I ended up getting a call from a pest company looking for a termite tech at 11 an hour, with a truck to take home and nice benefits with plenty of overtime. This allowed me to finally get married after 6 years (7 years april 2nd) and to move out of the parents house.
By the way, my certificate was in Web Design XD
