Those same kids could still take those lower paying jobs, live at home for a couple of years and throw everything they make into their debt and be relatively debt free in a couple of years.

Even a 9 buck an hour job, they can pay off about 25 grand in those couple of years.

Yeah, no car and no life, but so what?

Twenty five grand, sure, but a lot are graduating with much more debt - in the $100+ range. I’d like to see figures on just how much debt is being incurred. Many probably never really thought about how the debt would be repaid, just like the housing crisis, only there I strongly suspect a lot of the “under qualified” never had any intention of paying.

Companies don’t want to pay anyone over 22 anymore; they save a lot of money by hiring uneducated young people (even at a high school level), and don’t care that the service is horrible to non-existent.
