Besides giving more prestige for workers in worker type jobs, public education should recognize that older workers need access to continuing education and training as older jobs become obsolete or unrecognizable.   Right now, France has a need for skilled workers along with a high unemployment rate - but insufficient training available to bring those unemployed the needed skills.

Trends indicate that professional skills are going to be less likely to be sufficient for a whole worker’s lifetime.

Countries where society puts less emphasis in getting the highest salary are generally much happier societies.   These often tax the wealthy much more than other countries.   And much more often, when their official work-days are ended, they leave work.   Work isn’t life.
