Well, it could not have a thing to do with the fact that more than half have useless degrees in social science, business, and other nonsense.

I reject your notion that a business degree is useless. I graduated ~6 months ago into a job paying 45k a year, and my wife graduated 1.5 half ago with a similar job. Both of us had business degrees.

And what skills did you bring to the table, I assure you, it was not your BBA alone. I would be almost certain you have strong work ethic and other skills.

Right, but that's not an accurate conclusion that a business degree is useless. Maybe if you said "a business degree is useless for MOST people." Semantics, I know. Or had you chosen "women's studies" or "music." I'm sorry to all those with those degrees, but...REALLY? What kind of job do you think you can get with that?

Get a degree in anything and you'll have to compete with 50+ people for the same job.

Once you discover that you aren't going to find salary jobs, you'll find that you're over-qualified for everything else. No manager in his right mind is going to hire a potential replacement.

Fucked up, isn't it?

You are so very correct.

I do not understand why people spend time & money for a degree that does not provide a marketable skill.

Liberal Arts, Women's Studies & the such are only good for those who do not have to work for a living. Very few of us fall into that category.
Life is karma and karma always reflects both past and present circumstance. Our time here is short, so choose carefully and behave well, for all of your tomorrows are presently being decided.
