Agreed, and what lunatic thinks a bike guy should be getting CHF500 a day?

There are people out there with a degree (that isnt a joke) and they are not getting 500, and some are even out of work.
Are you saying that people with degrees are:
a) more skilled
b) more entitled than those without?

Hourly rates are subject to market forces like all others..your skills are worth what people are willing to pay...degree or not.

So everyone with a degree is highly intelligent and a bike repair guy is stupid. Very logical from you to compare who should be paid more. Let me guess, you have a degree.

With a degree that isnt a joke.

So English comprehension is not where it needs to be I see.

And truthfully, people with real degrees such as engineering and medicine are on average, better than those without, or those with religious or mumbo jumbo degrees.

Its a hard life.

Isn't not isnt, It's not its. If you want to revert to the typical "I've lost the argument so I'll comment on your English" then make sure you do it correctly.

I am typing on a phone u clot. Do u have any idea how hard it is to insert commas and apostrophes!

And guess what , it is not just me who thinks those with a real degree are worth more.

Your argument sucks as does your degree.

I don't have a degree, what made you think I did? Your way of proving your degree is very important by getting aggressive is rather amusing. I can see by your red blobs and number of groans that you should find someway of relaxing, how about mending bikes as a hobby?

I'd never let a degree educated engineer lay hands on my bike... there is a difference between people who understand stuff and people who are practically capable to do things. That some of the first category think they are some superior beings is rather typical... but doesn't mean they are right.
