PO1 William "Chip" Nagel until AI replaces them...
..."Even entry-level tech jobs pay better than many other roles
After finishing her course, Brandy hopes to stay with her current employer, American Airlines. Having worked as a gate agent for seven years, she's now eyeing an IT support role with the airline.

"It's way better pay. It's basically three times more than what I'm making now," she says.

Ayala says that pay jump is typical for Per Scholas graduates, many of whom come from the service sector.

Elizabeth Mabrey, 23, has been working at a CVS, and before that at a Barnes and Noble.

"When you think about most retail jobs, a lot of times they pay you based off of [a] high school-level education," she says. "Even if you did get more education, that's generally where they stop."

Mabrey had recently been enrolled in community college, studying art. But realizing that many creative jobs, including in graphic design, are threatened by technology and specifically artificial intelligence, she designed to change plans.

"I want to make sure I have security. And IT is definitely a secure place to go," she says."
