From a skills perspective, then I agree it is something that is becomming rarer and rarer, i.e. someone with skills, particularly manual skills.
I work in an office environment these days but back in the 70's did a full engineering apprenticeship, hand on in just about every concievable discipline.
New staff these days usually come straight from university, and have no real grasp of practical working, yes they can use all of the latest computer applications, but have no concept of working as a team or doing things practically, oh yes and of course they all expect a massive salary.
The system is pretty much broke as far as I can see, in some respects technology must take some of the blame.
