I understand your pain brother, but don't place the blame on the computer industry. Every industry has menial, tedious gruntwork that needs to be done, in theory, by going to college, you'll be getting the qualifications to do something more rewarding, leaving the dirty work for some other poor sob who can't get anything better.

Whatever field you go into, you can't expect to start out at the top, you have to pay your dues and work your way up. Consider someone going into an apprenticeship, they spend their first year doing little more than fetching coffee for the person they're assigned to. The only jobs available around where I live are food-service, retail and construction jobs, I would kill to find a monotonous, low stress job where I didn't have some over-stressed micromanager constantly breathing down my neck.
