The importance of learning real world practical skills from a college degree program has never been more obvious.
College undergraduate courses that should more accurately be named, Hating Conservatives 101 Being Ashamed of America White Guilt and Radical Chic are even less useful now than ever before. The garbage radical professors have been cramming into our young generations heads, for so many years, has finally caught up to them and it is doing appalling damage.

It’s as bad as when Carter was president and probably worse. The country and the states were not broke then.
Well maybe the new grads will not be impressed with capitalism as a job producer.
I think you nailed it. Bitter medicine coming,,,
they probably all majored in Political Science with a minor in Sustainable Green Development. Utterly unemployable outside the halls of Gubbermint.
Yeah, a degree in Womyns Studies is really gonna get you places!
These Obamics didn’t need College to get on the Government dole.
LInk is not working for me either. THis one is working:
This is the final lesson of the marxist profs.
After being "taught" for four+ years, spending all that money on a college "education," and then finding no jobs in America, the guardian of capitalism in the world, they will have a whole new crop of marxists to spew/push their agenda.
This is being done on purpose.
Everyone needs two or more skills for the modern world. Your college major, and a fall back position in the trades. Welder, steel worker or fabricator, heavy equipment operator, plumber, Electrician, ect.
Spending hundreds of thousands on classes that will barely earn you more than minimum wage, without government grants, is folly.
The average trades worker will probably make more in their lifetime than some college educated person whose fall back position is bagging groceries.
To add to that, with the inflated cost of college education, many of these college graduates will be graduating with tens of thousands or even over a hundred thousand dollars of student loan debt. This debt can’t be discharged, even in bankruptcy.
The lessons for young people:
1. Choose your major carefully.
2. Don’t go to a more expensive school just because it’s “better” or “more prestigious.” Do graduates of the “better” school actually earn enough more money to make the extra cost for the degree worthwhile? The vast majority of employers in the vast majority of fields **really don’t care** if you got your degree from State U or an Ivy League school. They’re going to pay you the same salary. (If more people thought through that rationally, a lot of private schools would be forced to lower their tuition to attract students.)
3. Be very wary of taking student loans. Unless you are earning a degree in a limited access, demanding field that virtually assures you a very high-paying job immediately on graduation, student loans may cost you more in the long run. Here’s a link http://www.er-doctor.com/doctor_income.html to an analysis by an ER doc showing that it would take the average doctor 18-27 years to catch up financially with the average UPS driver, based on average salaries, lost working years for the doctor, and average student loan debt. (He said the pay back time is probably even longer since he didn’t factor in student loan interest!)
While doctors eventually end up ahead, many graduates who take large student loans to earn degrees in low demand or low salary fields will not. Financially, they would have been better off if they had finished high school and learned a skilled trade, or worked their way up from an entry level job.
But hey, look at the bright side - they can live at home with Mommy and Daddy until they're 40 and no one (least of all Mommy and Daddy) will bat an eye!
But still not working for some reason!!

By the capitalists?
No--by the marxists. They are setting up the grads to fail at life, then blame capitalism.
