Sure Ken, it may be some people's "easy" choice, but it is also some people's only choice.

Agreed. And I should add, too, that I meant no slight to people doing back-breaking or mind-numbing work (I've done both). Much useful and necessary work in this world is unglamorous and there should be no shame in doing it for a decent wage. And I believe that we do society and many our fellow citizens a great disservice by promoting engaging, creative, clean-fingered, white-collar office work as the "normal" goal of our education system ... as if other outcomes are somehow failures (or so it seems to me ofttimes).
