The whole reason I've stayed where I am is because I've dug into the numbers and am better off where I am that starting over with insane debt. if I went to college I'd be there 4 years, end it with 80-90k debt (I talked with MIT, Phoenix, and Devry) , and start out making what I make now minus over time. As is, with my skills and job I) am able to get healthy overtime and make a healthy living. Even better, I'm nowhere near capped out here, I'm 5 years into this place with plenty of upward mobility.
I guess I'm just lucky then? I have no degree and get $20 an hour. This place isn't even the best paying company in the area either. I'll skip the indoctrination and keep earning double what these college kids get.
