Bloomberg: Students Should Skip College, Become Plumbers Instead

Hard to believe the mayor who destroyed many of the career and technological education programs in the city school system and geared the NYCDOE accountability system toward "College For All" now says this:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -Former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg has some advice for high school seniors: forget college, become a plumber instead.


"Today if your kid wants to go to college or become a plumber, you've got to think long and hard," said Bloomberg Monday at the annual meeting of Wall Street trade group SIFMA.

"If he's not going to go to a great school and he's not super smart academically, but is smart in terms of dealing with people and that sort of thing, being a plumber is a great job because you have pricing power, you have an enormous skill set," he said.

The founder of financial data and news services company Bloomberg L.P. even went as far as to say that students considering Harvard should do the math.

You could pay $50,000 to $60,000 a year to Harvard or you could make that much as an apprentice plumber, he explained.

Too bad the Little Oligarch didn't think this bright idea before he destroyed many of the CTE programs in city schools and started bludgeoning schools over college stats.


  1. What a jackass. Just like Gates. Unsuccessfully experimenting on children's lives, then making flippant comments about it.

  2. If you are a member of the ruling class, your deserving child idiot that he may be is destined for Harvard.

  3. So if every high school kid took his advice, would the salary of plumbers drop dramatically? No wonder, our nation is in a rapid the decline.

  4. This is the same terd who came to my school and spoke about how he envisioned all nyc kids going to college and that our cte programs are ancient. Now, i am an atr as our school closed and this worthless old piece of garbage is lecturing about plumbers....i would love to see bloomberg caught by isis.

  5. What people don't realize is how much plumbers can actually make. It's the best kept secret. I ran into a guy at a networking event and had a lengthy conversation with him. To my surprise I discovered he was a plumber and we started doing business. It was months later that I discovered how much he made as a plumbing entrepreneur which was into the 300k mark. As I continued to work with him his business began to grow and grow. I can only speculate how much he makes now.
