There was a time when most young people knew they were going to have a career designing video games, and felt they were preparing themselves by playing a lot of those. The parents were wealthy with equity loans and didn't disagree. The kids didn't know that even to design a game they needed language, math and work ethics. What we have now are quite a few manufacturing jobs and not nearly enough qualified candidates. The reason? Applicants fail in one or all of ability to use mathematics to measure a part, ability to form a sentence, commitment to come to work everyday.
