Seems to me that we old craftsman need to pass our knowledge to the younger generations. We don't need stage coach builders, wheel wrights, but we do need Skilled personnel that demand a good wage. Most companies are trying to combine work skills getting a mechanic, electrician, carpenter and more in one person to decrease maintainence costs and improve profits on the working persons back. This I can tell you, calling someone a multiskilled maintainence person doesn't make them skilled in all areas anymore than standing in your garage would make you a car.
