Actor John Ratzenberger: Blue Collar Workers Should be Called ‘Essential Workers’
Actor John Ratzenberger said Wednesday he believes parents should be more supportive of their children going to a vocational school, instead of a liberal arts college.
“They [parents] think if their child goes on to be a brick layer or a welder that somehow they’re not as intelligent as the kid that went on to a four-year liberal arts college,” he told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney.
Ratzenberger said the path for an apprentice plumber, electrician or carpenter, for example, is more difficult than a four-year college, but the reward is greater.
“At the end of the day, you’re going to be making a lot more money too,” he said.
The former “Cheers” and “Toy Story” actor explained why the term “blue collar” worker should be replaced with “essential worker.”
