So much for the employment value of a 4yr degree.

It Takes a B.A. to Find a Job as a File Clerk

What matters, is what is really important...

Awesome, so get a degree just to feel included in the "social atmosphere" while getting a shitty job and shitty pay. Yeah this model is gonna be GREAT!

simple degree inflation caused by the government burning taxpayer dollars to let lazy kids get depressingly basic liberal arts degrees.

look at the big names in "fields increasingly requiring a bachelors." http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/04/degree-inflation-jobs-that-newly-require-b-a-s/ they're mostly operators and technicians doing stuff robots can't do yet. people with stem or business degrees don't go into these fields... they get real jobs which actually use their talents.

Fueled by a baseless requirement that employees have degrees they don't need, personally or for the job. Which came first, the demand for a degree, or government backed student loans?
