Random thoughts on value of college degree

About 20 years ago I noticed a trend in Florida state government where secretaries were going back to school to get their BS degrees. They had gone from secretaries to administrative assistants seemingly overnight as the demands of their positions increased.

Fast forward twenty years and half the cashiers at Kroger and the bank tellers at Chase have college degrees and the demands of their positions haven’t changed in 100 years.

College is becoming a playpen for the children of the 99% giving the one percent some time to determine what to do with them.

    Years ago, it was said that college was a way of keeping young people out of the work force a little longer. Also, it was a way for young men to delay being drafted into the US military.
