It’s time for a large number of Americans to hear what might seem like a harsh message: A degree from a four-year university might not be for you. Popular culture would cast this frank assessment as elitist. But that’s a toxic myth that needs to vanish because the stakes are too high. A new study by Young Invincibles, a think tank geared toward issues facing young Americans, estimates that high youth unemployment costs the government about $25 billion in lost tax revenue. All the while, there are three million jobs that employers can’t fill because too many workers lack the requisite skills.
Others have made this observation. Tuition rises because more are going to college. Student loans are given to young people to study “humanities”. Mostly fluff courses and liberal b.s.
All together the US produces many people with worthless degrees. Many jobs can’t be filled because Moma’s special little snowflake won’t take a vocational job. Mike Rowe was first to notice this and is now “uncool”. Wal-mart, Target, other local shops that cater to the middle class and the poor are pilloried in the media.
Income “inequality” is the left’s answer. Like global warming, it’s just Marxism with a fresh coat of paint. The Occupy “movement” didn’t succeed because it was all envy and hate not answers.
We need jobs not class warfare.
Expect the left to whine and cry as their recruitment dries up.
