Being an electrician or plumber is not the half way point between labourer and engineer by any means. There is a vast difference between the two and they are quite distinct. You can make a lot of money working in a trade if you get a good reputation or work for a reputable firm.
Maybe its a regional difference but round this way its not seen as lower down the chain doing a trade and practical work than going to uni compared to London.
I’ve hardly used anything I learned at uni (for the two years I was there) even though I studied IT and electronics and still work in an engineering role..
