What did you think was gonna happen?
Did you honestly think they were just gonna give youa 100k /yr job just because you went to college?
NO!

The wages will go down, people will be forced to take less and less pay just to be able to have a job. Pretty soon you will be working for free. And that piece of paper ain't gonna meana thing.

I don't believe anything the tv tells me, if they say the economy is getting better, it is not. It is all designed to go down. People will sell their souls just to be able to eat.

I have no faith in the economy. Hell, Ben Bernanke even said he does not see the economy turning around for the NEXT 5 YRS! that's 2017 for you and me!
Get used to it.

When I graduated from a 4 year nursing program in 1982 I made $9/hr. That was great at the time.

Did you expect 100k a year with zero experience? You need to learn and to become valuable. That shit takes time.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21737975



Oh puLEEZE! 10 bucks an hour for someone with a degree? You're off your rocker.

The FACT is that the U.S. -- and in fact the entire West, including the EU -- is being taken down as the East (Russia, China, India) is being built up. That should surprise nobody who has been paying attention.

All this hoopla about "retraining for a new career" only quiets the slaves while the schools are cashing in.
 Quoting: AZGal 1486221


thank AND you

I've been out for 6 years, major university, 3.5 GPA and internships up to wazhoo

If places aren't hiring, what can you do? Force em...for most of us the BEST we can do is take these jobs for pennies just so people won't call us lazy...

I know I'm worth more and bring better to the table, but the jobs AREN'T THERE...6 years of looking has told me this...

You are either gonna work for the gov't (military, overseas contractor, TSA or alphabet agency), in medical as a billing specialist or receptionist or in a nursing home, or doing grunt work like a garbage man, clothes sales associate or even a grocery store bagger.

What's a 30+ year old with a full education pedigree look like doing this...? sometime we don't have a choice

And then there's the matter of being able to relocate where the jobs are. So many people feel they can't do that.

I used to make good money in IT but with all the newbies desperate for experience they have pushed wages to 7/11 level for most computer related fields in south Florida. check out our local craigslist and see what your MCSE is worth.

I got out of it into something else that is doing much better. At this point if your above 40 and lose your job you pretty much are going to be in a downward wage spiral and lucky to get anything.

This is standard dude.

This is what TPTB want you to invest in. Waste time in meaningless college or University, then "step out into the world" and get a high paying job.

Rarely does one attain it.

I went to college for half a year, realized it was a waste of fucking time and dropped out.

I make $17 an hour right now not in the field I was studying for.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18647453


$17 an hour? How do you live like that?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4444880


I am a Multi-Millionaire twice over, plus 2 Army Retirements.

We live on about $1,500 a month which would equate to $9.30hr "If we worked"

I bring in about $14k every month with my investments, but I spend only a 1/10th of it

Hang in there! Four years of college puts you in a different social class than those who didn't go at all. I find that most people who attend college are more sophisticated than those who don't. Certainly you're more intelligent. Things will work out.

My son graduated from ASU with a 4.2 (advanced courses) in Biology, applied to Med school, got waitlisted, shadows a Dr. In practice for FREE for experience and can't find a job besides a deli clerk at Frys Grocery store. He went to school on academic scholarship, took no loans, worked all the way through and is SO disillustioned. With the supposed shortage of doctors out there and all of Obummer's promises....just sucks

Re: getting paid $10 An hour after 4 years college degree
Stop whining suck it up and make a go of it.
Besides you dont need a college degree to make it.

One good friend of mine owns a business, worked it up from the bottom and is now a multi millionaire at 50.

Since he had a business when he was 16 I dont even know if he graduated high school. May have gotten a GED.

I went the degree route, but quite a few years ago like graduated in the mid 80s.

1st job 1st year 20k, 2nd year 25k 3rd year 38k,
Self employed 4 year 60k, 5th year 100k. That's about 200k in today's money.

Wish I was making that now but the economy sucks for most everybody except Obama.

It will get better, hopefully.

Re: getting paid $10 An hour after 4 years college degree
I have a High School Diploma.

I am now a Chief Information Officer and have been for the Last 14 years. Before that I was a VP of IT for the previous 6 years.

I have hired and Fired Master Degrees in Technology and MBAs.

A Degree Doesn't mean squat to me. Many who think they have arrived after School haven't a clue of what it takes to make it.

I really question what is being taught in school. Some of the most ignorant people I have ever met have acquired a degree and that is a true mystery why any institution of higher learning would ever pass some of these students.

 Quoting: DooMCooN


Nope, it is higher pay than that. It is also highly dangerous and there are only a dozen or so underwater welders in the whole USA. Not exactly a job where they will hire you on the spot. Most are independent contractors who have their own businesses.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21732094


That's not true, actually.

I went to The Ocean Corporation (Commercial Diving/NDT/Underwater Welding) many many moons ago & we had 7+ classes of 20+ students each running simultaneously at any given time.

Companies like Oceaneering would come in at graduation day & hire virtually the entire graduating class.
