Gary just informed Adam that both of Mike’s parents were teachers, Mike agrees while rephrasing the dumb bullshit argument about education vs. hard work and physical labor.
Mike says screw the skills gap, he says it’s a “will gap” and makes a funny crack about this not being a shorter rephrasing of what Adam said.
