My agency employs various therapists, requiring degrees and certificates, and home health contractors. Minimum wage is $11 hourly in Arizona. The last that I checked, they pay $14 for respite--special needs babysitting with background checks and paperwork, and $16 an hour for habilitation--helping individuals with life skills.

Then there is something called Attendant Care where you change diapers, bathe them, and otherwise keep them alive and healthy. That usually pays less than the other two.

I could train a habilitation provider to do virtually everything that I do, but without the college, certificate, and liability insurance, they make $16 hourly, while the lowest rate that I have seen for an SLPA is $25 hourly.

Aside of random incoherent thoughts, I do not know that I have any ability to think outside the box. I do not know that college teaches you to conform, but it does not seem that most people without college figure out how to beat the rat race, either.

Often, it seems that college is how one pays to play in the job market.
