Hence why so many students attend college. Because they don't want to to make only 25,000.

What I find funny is I remember you saying in the minimum wage thread that they should just go to college. But no you are like, you stupid kids paying a lot for college.

Well, which is patty? Do you want them to stay at a job making on 15,000 a year, or should they risk the debt and try for a better job by attending college?
This isn't that complicated. Going to college is one way to improve your earning potential, but make sure you're pursuing a degree that will be cost effective. If you want to learn a little bit about music history or queer studies, consider going to the library and checking out a book instead of borrowing a ton of money to get a degree that you can't adequately monetize.

I was talking to a corporate recruiter who went to Rutgers and Princeton and these young condescending punks who have never really worked a day in their lives (like the one you're conversing with here) were DEMANDING THINGS! I WANT THIS WAGE, AND I WANT TO DO THIS! I couldn't believe it, until I talked to some other recruiters and they said the same exact thing. and then they cry that they cant find a job.

The college youth (the majority of them) may be book smart, but that does not equate to being real life smart. I have some college kids working for me in the summer part time, and most of them are pretty dumb.

We are doomed. this country is going down.

Two jobs, unpaid internship, 18 credit hours.

Affordable education isn't entitlement.

But hey, have fun on the soap box.

Still beating that horse of worthless major, huh?

Well, lets see what the popular majors are, shall we?






Now keep in mind that the most popular undergraduate degree for lawyers others who are looking and graduate school and beyond is English and History, because of the writing focus and research focus prepares you for the required workload.

If you go deeply into debt to get an English degree and end up working as a Starbucks barista (because English experts are in low demand) instead of arguing cases in front of the Supreme Court, it's hard for me to have much sympathy for you.

English Experts are not in low demand. You literally have no concept of college today.

The number one thing employers are looking for besides someone who will show up on time is communication skills and critical thinking skills - something that will benefit an employee in a large number of jobs.

But hey, don't take my word for it:

Best Pre Law Schools and Majors

http://www.lawyeredu.org/best-pre-law-schools.html

History -"Students will study developing political systems, famous trials, treaties, and international history. All of these subjects will afford the student the opportunity to understand how the law affects the rules of society. Knowing these things will help the student have a solid grasp on precedents that established our laws. It will also help the student become a more persuasive litigator by knowing the history behind the law."

English-"Two of the most fundamental activities for lawyers is reading and writing. It is critical that an attorney possess strong reading and writing skills. Each argument presented in court is first well researched, thought out, and written down. Strong reading skills will help a student learn how to absorb large amounts of information at a fast pace. Strong writing skills will help to formulate persuasive arguments.

The English major will develop excellent critical thinking skills as well. A good attorney must analyze each case in order to determine the best way to approach a resolution. English majors are required to read critically. They will have to analyze, compare, and contrast a wide variety of literature. These activities will develop a student's ability to think critically which will translate into invaluable skills for law school"

The other four on the website:

Philosophy
Political Science
Economics
Business

There is a legitimate complaint about the Cost of a College Education.

There are tons of jobs out there that pay way more than 25k without a degree. The youth today is so mislead about a college education. I will however contend that you do need a skill or a trade to make money.
