A minor rant. I hear now and again someone talking about the old craftsman ways and how an apprentice used to pay his master for services. Now, we expect our first job to pay us well and it is a terrible injustice. To that I can only say that we do pay for our apprenticeships, but it is now called college. Whether you agree or disagree that it is a valuable apprenticeship, it is one just the same and probably had the same value now as it did back in the olden days. So, the next time you think you ought to get paid for taking on an apprentice, go teach school.
