“Should I Be an Electrician?”

I disagree with the advice that Penelope Trunk gave here:  Yes, the woman should go be an electrician, instead of an anthropology major working in a dead-end job.  We actually need electricians more than we need anthropology majors.  Hell, we need ditch-diggers more than we need anthropology majors.  And don’t get me started on the academic disciplines that anthropology majors sneer at.

Mind you, there’s probably a really good reason that the advice-seeker’s dad doesn’t want her working for him.  But the general principle is sound.
