Employers will take a person with no college degree and work experience to someone with a degree and no work experience. Work experience trumps a college degree almost every time. Stefan goes into other factors too such as all the debt college graduates have.

Jamesbond, that's an interesting video. However, did you know that some graduates with student loan debt are actually FLEEING THE US to avoid paying it. Here are a couple of links you may find interesting:

I just heard a report on the news that stated, 50% of college graduates are either unemployed or underemployed!

I thought the economy was getting better (according to Obama). I guess not if even college graduates are having a hard time finding jobs. :shock:

I bet if you went on Zillow, you'll find that many of the homes in middle class areas near you are under foreclosure or auction status (for areas where people make under $100K or so per year).

I don't know about anyone else, but all I got was a piece of paper and a wiped out bank account. If I could rewind time, I'd take my butt overseas and fashion model. Paid to wear nice clothes (and keep them when done).

Great documentary on college graduates who can't find jobs.

The world is becoming so efficient technically and mechanically we don't need all these people to tend shop at all.

The Georgia Guide Stones projection of 500 million sounds about right......
