a persistent divide in the recovery.
Yeah. Sure. Keep that language going. We still believe it.
From the article:
Of course, though college grads are getting the lions share of the jobs, it doesnt mean those are good jobs. Overall employment gains have come from lower wage jobs, with many graduates underemployed.

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both.)
Huh? All the Hispanic high school (and less) graduates in my neighborhood have steady jobs, drive late-model pick-up trucks and pay their rent on time while the college grads sit at home watching Jeopardy.

It all depends on what jobs the college graduates are getting. If their major was EE, I hope the job isn’t and McDonalds. If their major is African-American Homosexual Transgender studies, I hope the job isn’t McDonalds, even though I haven’t stepped into a McDonalds in a good ten years.

I’m waiting for the Radical Feminist Studies Masters degree holder to finish changing the oil in my Super Duty at Jiffy Lube.
I’d take her to lunch if she was hot, but she isn’t.
because too many employers have college degree requirements for jobs that don’t need a degree but experience. graoic design is flooded with unnecessary degrees when ability abd experience can be just as productive. but many “failed” artists become teachers so it is like a 3D printer printing copies of itself.

Raise minimum wage and the competition demands better credentials. The bar is raised beyond the unskilled high school grad boundary. Perhaps above AA/AS degree as well.

I wonder how many older Americans without degrees retired, quit or passed away, while younger ones with useless ones took their place.
If their major is African-American Homosexual Transgender studies they are now either working for the federal government or teaching your kids.

And half of college grads are working in jobs that don’t require a degree, in essence taking jobs from the less educated.
