1 post / 0 new

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.
