Kevin O’Leary thinks attending college isn’t necessarily the best financial decision for everyone. “I don’t recommend college for everybody,” O’Leary tells CNBC Make It. “The fact is, there’s a lot of trade schools that would help you make a lot more money. Be a plumber, they get rich,” he says. “Everybody has to have a plumber, even in a recession.”
In a previous interview, O’Leary told us that perspective students should think about the amount of debt they’ll incur and how a college education will help them pay that off. To that point, the time and cost commitments for trade schools tend to be less than a traditional college or university education.
