I agree that there are other, better paying, jobs out there. I disagree that people that work security don't apply a useful skill, at least not ALL the time.

I DO work up a sweat OFTEN, I apply several useful skills everyday (maybe I'm the exception to the rule) and working security is NOT my only option. As I stated before, I think that to work long term in security, you have to like what you do. While a lot of people in the field are just in it for a minimum wage paycheck (the same can be said of a LOT of jobs), I actually like my job, some of the people that I deal with on a daily basis are some of my favorite people in the world.

I guess what I'm saying is that not all security guards are the same. We're not all the donut eating mouth breather working unarmed at your local bank. Just like not all gun shop salesmen are knowledgeable, not all mechanics are honest and not all carpenters are skilled.

Just my $0.02 worth from quite a bit of time in the field.
