        There will always be recessions every several years. The government is already so broke, and interest rates already so low, that there won't be much available for pump-priming purposes when the next slump hits us. When it does, the shop guys tend to get laid off, and the mobile welders who had been making a decent living find they are competing for scarce work with a whole bunch of laid-off shop guys who put a welder in their pickup and work for little more than their previous wage. It will take longer and longer for jobs to come back after each future recession. I wouldn't advise anyone on what to do, but I believe this is the future for many.
