Are you better off with your college degree as opposed to people without them?
George Leef, Forbes contributor, contends that college degrees aren’t becoming more valuable because:
⁃ Constantly increasing College tuitions leave graduates struggling with college debts
⁃ A college degree does not guarantee a job
⁃ Currently, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, 260,000 people with college or even professional degrees are employed that college graduates can only find employment in jobs paying the minimum wage
⁃ In 2013, 36 percent of college graduates worked in jobs that do not require any advanced academic preparation
⁃ Higher education has been oversold and causes a credential inflation phenomenon.
On the other hand, The Rising Cost of Not Going to College report by Pew Research contends just the opposite, that college graduates are outperforming and doing much better than their peers without one.
