Plumbers get more education than lawyers!

Quite some time ago, I saw a statistic that shows plumbers get more treaining than lawyers do! They purportedly received 40 hours per year in order to keep their licenses. Lawyers are required to have approximately 25 hours in 3 years, or 8+ hours per year.

Is there something wrong with this picture?

Today, National Public Radio reported that the National Association of Manufacturers recommends to its members that they give 3% of their revenue to educating their employees.

What would that same percentage mean to lawyers? Assuming an average billable work load of 1500 hours, that would mean 45 hours per year!
