Advanced Degrees Make People Low Skilled?!

Some low-skill jobs carry higher suicide risk: study

Apparently, “nursing, farming, forestry, library, museum or archival sciences, sports and recreation, motor transport, heavy equipment operating and construction trades” are all low skill jobs. Who would have thought that the advanced degrees required to become nurses or librarians would make people low skilled? Farmers and foresters also apparently require few skills to grow the food we eat and harvest our forests, sports & recreation workers don’t know how to play their sports well, motor transport & heavy equipment operators are unable to operate dangerous machinery because they don’t have the skills to do so, and tradespeople don’t know how to build our houses or other buildings.
