The Truth About College...

Thursday, July 04, 2013

An example of the new America: A brother and sister were driving to a couple stores and the conversation of buying things they needed came up. As they were talking, the sister mentioned that she needed to get a new car. The brother said, “Well, you have a college degree now, so you can go get the job that pays you more." The sister, who made between 10 and 11 dollars an hour said, “I already got the job that my college degree will get me. Now what?”

    Very true. Community college and trade schools are sounding better and better. I sure don't want my kids to graduate with a ton of debt either.

    In the northeast, graduate degrees (Master's) only make $13 to $15 per hour in the sectors of education, finance and computer science. It truly is the new America. We are better than this, though! I hope it inspires many to follow their true passions! (when i figure mine out, i'll let you know!)

    Used to be one of the very best paying jobs was a 'Sanitary Engineer' aka trash man.
