Thread regarding Microsoft Corp. layoffs

Microsoft announced they expect an additional 30,000 layoffs

due to the slow down in Windows 10 sales that is related to personal computer sales drastically slowing. I am glad I decided to be a Plumber then learning how to Code mine.

I personal know many longer term Engineers who just got layoff notice from MS.
If I skipped collage and went right to journeyman path in Electrician or Plumber, I could have my own stable small business and my income would be at least triple I now have as 25yr software developer. If will still be some time before robots and AI can wire and plub a whole house. Even if they could for new house, Plumber and Electricians will have work on old houses for many years. People in those trades that are my age have way more money than I do and not the same fear of the always coming layoff.

If you are young Get off tick-tock and grab a tool :)
