My immediate problem with Obama economy is 50% of new college graduates can not find adequate jobs. I got 2 kids in college, one of them will graduate in one more year.
The “youth” voted for Obama, so they must learn from it. I suppose they could do what American kids have done for decades, be grateful for whatever job they can find. I refuse to foot the bill for my adult kids, it does pain me to watch them struggle, but it is better in the long run. Now that Obama has offered to buy the “student loan” vote, we shall see. I told my four, no loans, no way, work like the rest of us did. I think they appreciate things much more that way.
There is a good chance that whatever job he gets he/she gets they could have gotten with a high school diploma. You might have been better off taking the money you spent and just used it to help them open a business.
Cheer up! With your kids’ compatriots all out marching in OWS demos and getting forehead tattoos, your kids will be well positioned top compete for those jobs. I’ll bet your kids will both be in the 50% that gets hired.
Forget a job - prepare your kid to be self employed in some type of way - no such thing as good jobs for college kids anymore.
