The number of minimum wage workers with college degrees is still more than double what it was during the Bush years.
If you thought paying tens of thousands of dollars for a college education guaranteed a high-paying job, think again.
Obamanomics in action
260,000 college graduates are stuck in minimum wage jobs.

This is what we get when every high school guidance coucelor pushes everyone to college even if it is not a good idea, now all these dum dums will be drowned in debt for the four years they spent partying...
Well that’s why we have to raise minimum wage! /liberal thought process
A modern American mainstream college education is simply debt serfdom.
They should have studied Chinese. That’s where the jobs went.
How else are the Obama’s to increase the numbers of Community Agitators — er, Organizers?
One of the guys that graduated from the local university with a masters in music was talking to my wife on the street a year ago. She asked him how he was doing. He said, Working at Hardee’s, livin’ the dream.
Not only will they be stuck in minimum wage jobs with useless sociology degrees but their debt is now owned by the federal government. Thanks Obamacare!
I went to two quarters of community college but majored in pinball. I then spent ~$2,300 for ten months of Cobol school. That was in 1982. It took me to a healthy six figure income.
College is nice, if it’s all you got...
No wonder Obama will be at UofM tomorrow to pimp a minimum wage increase. The college educated idiots will be making minimum wage themselves.
I see they’re touting his speech as being the 50 year anniversary of LBJs great society speech. Its not, LBJ gave the speech in late May.
That's interesting. 25 years ago they were pushing learning computer languages before business started buying programs and the growth of personal computers. Out of phase. The future is now. Move fast.

Mine was sort of the opposite. I went to a very expensive school (scholarships and grants) and got a degree in Business but while I was there I discovered the Computer Lab (1978) — 2 Hazeltine 300 baud terminals, a Decwriter II and a DTC 500. That was the whole lab. I started playing games in all my off time (”Turn 90” “torp”) and got interested in what makes them work. Taught myself BASIC, then COBOL and then got a job as a programmer in my Sr. year. I have never been unemployed since (although I did try to start a few businesses).
I am also in the decent 6 figure range, but programming is no longer very lucrative (we offshore it for $8/hr). I am a IT project manager but I always keep my hands on. It helps me make better decisions than thoretical managers.
HAHAHA! I hate project management, but I’ve been a BA for about ten years. ;-)
The move was quite intentional. I figured I needed to focus on a position that was “communication intensive”. Being very much a sanguine personality type and a good “people person”, the fit is like a glove.
The kool thing is even though we are an MVC 4 and Oracle (Peoplesoft) shop, the developers very much appreciate that I can relate to their issues, having been one for over two decades. The job is also a lot of fun. Still...
BTW, one of the guys I graduated from Tech school with, and worked with at three different companies, has been the CIO of Nordstrom for going on a couple of decades. We sorta lost touch when I moved to KY, but my daughter is a Sr BA there now. :-)
He got wood...................
Oh, and she’s doing it on personl training from me and a GED!
... and paying $2 more for every gallon of gasoline, thanks ZERO!
Good for them. Many of these youth voted for DIMs/LIBs/nobama...they are getting an education, no?
What do you call a person with a Liberal Arts degree?
