    From your link:

    "That said, not all degrees are created equal. The AP reports that students who graduated out of the sciences or other technical fields, such as accounting, were much less likely to be jobless or underemployed than humanities and arts graduates. You know that old saw about how college is just about getting a fancy piece of paper? Not true. For an education to be worth anything these days, it needs to impart skills. "

    Seriously? You're actually going to claim he's moderate? Clinton was moderate, Bush was moderate, Obama is not moderate.

    Ok, that doesn't mean anything. There are still plenty of people with "good degrees" that are underemployed.

    I don't know anyone with a science, engineering, finance, or accounting degree that is underemployed...

    Re: Walmart says it will kill plans to build 3 new stores if DC wage bill passes

    From your article:

    It's hard to imagine why any of this might be, other than that some recent grads may simply not be willing to take the low level jobs available to them.
    and

    So is a college education simply less valuable than in the past? In some respects, yes. According to the Census, the number of Americans under the age of 25 with at least a bachelor's degree has grown 38 percent since 2000. Not nearly enough jobs have been created to accommodate them, which has resulted in falling wages for young college graduates in the past decade, as well as the employment problems we're now seeing.

    Greetings, AP.

    : There was an interesting article on Yahoo yesterday which stated that engineers are commanding six-figure salaries to start, due to shortage of available applicants. Wow!

    ok...? Why does one want to get a higher education when you can get the same exact low wage job without one?

    Good evening pg...

    I'm not sure that those salaries would be available in all areas of the country, but a graduate in any of these fields who was in the top half of the class should not have an issue finding a good opportunity...
