I don't like this video at all. It's very biased
against people who actually go to college and succeed.
It really depends on what your major is in college, and how marketable your degree
is. If your degree is engineering/finance/accounting/nursing
, your degree is marketable and will have a decent paying job(given if you are persistent enough)
if your degree is psychology/art/cake major, then you are wasting your money because those degrees aren't very marketable.
Again, the video is VERY biased and takes on the biased perspectives
Fact is, college isn't a WASTE OF money or time. If you have the right degree
, you will be making more money than a guy with just a high school diploma.
This video assumes too much without providing examples on the specifics. A person with a college degree in accounting for example, WILL in-fact make more money than a person without a college degree. DUHHh! whY?! becaues that accounting degree will open doors for him in the accounting fields(white collar jobs) therein, will give him a decent salary.
Compared to a person wtihout a college degree, he/she will probably be a blue collar worker making considerably less than the "white collar accountant".
Again, IT DEPENDS on the degree, it depends on the school, and it depends how persistent you are on finding a Job. A person with a college degree in finance who is very persistent at finding a job who went to college in UCLA will probably have more opportunities than a guy with just a high school diploma. FACT FACT FACT. Lets compare statistics shall we?
A typical high school graduate, who works as a "truck driver" probably will make 30,000$ a year
a typical college graduate, who has a nursing/accounting degree, probably will make 60,000-80,000$ a year
There is a 30,000$ difference between the truck driver and the accountant. In a 30 year span, the accountant who has a salary of 60,000$ a year will make 900,000$ mroe dollars in 30 years than the truck driver who made 30,000$ a year. Subtract another 100,000 on student loans, the accountant made 800k more dollars than the truck driver who just had a high schol diploma. I'm just using this as an example, im not taking into account the benefits, the raises, etc...
the video is only depicting national averages. What if the person went to a community college first? Then transferred? worked ap art time job, and barely owes any money? THe video is VERY biased on depicting the negatives, gives BIASED numbers, gives biased statistics, and gives a lot of bullshit.
