No Diploma? No Problem!

Turns out you need a high school diploma to work as an electrical apprentice on Alaska’s North Slope. And Levi Johnston doesn’t have one. So he quit his job. But only after a local radio talk show host wondered aloud how Johnston could have gotten into an apprenticeship program when he has not graduated from high school:

Levi Johnston, the boyfriend of Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, has quit his North Slope oil field job over questions about his eligibility to work in an electrical apprenticeship program, Johnston’s father said Monday.

Johnston, 18, began working this fall in the Milne Point oil field with ASRC Energy Services Inc., a major Slope contractor.

In a Sunday newspaper column, Anchorage radio talk show host Dan Fagan questioned how Johnston could take part in ASRC’s apprenticeship program without a high school diploma.

Fagan said he understood federal regulations require all members of apprenticeship programs to have a diploma. He also questioned whether the governor might have had a hand in getting Johnston into the program.

Palin adamantly denied that Monday.

Well, Bristol did say she had a very supportive family.

    Levi Johnston was working as an electrical apprentice WITHOUT A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA OR EVEN A GED??? That doesn’t happen in the REAL WORLD folks. Some QUALIFIED kid with a diploma or GED got bumped. Bristol Palin is living a fantasy life, not many unwed mothers have Sarah Palin pulling strings and making phone calls, you betcha.
