Most of the non-tech working people have no clue on how much money is available in the tech jobs and with how much relatively little work you can earn significantly better than their hard working non-tech job. amirite?

I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. I don't think it's necessary the lack of knowledgeability of pay grade information. For some people it's not all about the money and the ease of life. For some they feel more dignity in physically hard work and enjoy it. Or at the very least they find tech jobs to bring less fulfillment and/or find it even menial.

I'm not against either just what makes a person tick varies person to person so it's only natural for this to be out on display by their career choices. Not to mention the phrase, "Well someone's gotta do it."

Enlighten me

I must say, getting away from the daily tech job, (3 years now) has given me (and my family) a much richer and less stressful life. Never regretting the decision.

yeah but its full of nerds

Okay... So how does one, who has no background in tech, transition into such a position? My body can't take much more of my current trade, and I desperately want to transition into something less physical, but I'm blue collar through and through. Lacking 15 years experience for an entry level position is a pretty big obstacle.

Coulda swore this was a Google career ad. Ill blame the algorithm

Most non-tech people go home at the end of the day, and live their lives with little to no stress.

This. I quit tech in 2008 and have no regrets. Did I make more money in tech? Yeah, and 70 hour weeks, and taking work home, and no life outside work. No thanks.
