According to a new report by the Associated Press – half of all young college graduates in America are either unemployed or underemployed. Armed with technical degrees for high-paying jobs – college graduates are increasingly forced to take work in the service sector – working as waitresses and bartenders as prospects for a post-college job are at their lowest level in a decade.

On top of that – the median wages for college graduates are down from where they were in 2000. Couple the poor job outlook with the over one trillion dollar student loan debt bubble – and it’s looking like the makings of a lost generation.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
