When my TV repair business died about 20 years ago I found a job as a test tech in a fiber optic undersea manufacturing company. They were paying techs 4 times what I made fixing TVs plus health insurance that would have cost me another three times to buy it as an individual. That was a total of eight times my TV pay for a total. I soon discovered what they had techs doing I could have trained a monkey to do at a TV repair shop. They hired engineers to do what we techs from the old days were expected to do. I couldn't have used any of the techs in my TV shop as they weren't knowledgeable enough or capable of doing that work. Many of their engineers would have been useless too. Those jobs seem to be broken down to where an engineer knows only a small part of the whole. So they don't really have to know much. On one job I worked my engineer was the daughter of one of my customers who used to watch me fix her mother's TV. The girl in HR emailed me looking for a used TV for her kids to play games on. I asked her how she knew to ask me. She said she used to watch me fix her grandfather's TV. Boy that makes ya feel old.
