    After reading this article, I do not have the feeling of regret for not having a degree or even have a college background. I am a full-time Legal/Litigation Assistant, solely trained by Criminal attorneys and I make way more that aircraft pilot in the Philippines. Most waitresses ans waiters makes almost double. It is sad that they Filipino pilots, engineers, nurses and other professionals are so under paid. They deserve way better. That’s my thoughts.
