    I know this is off topic but High School needs to be revised.
    Perhaps, you could suggest paying the students $15.00 an hour to learn a "skill".

    Well......there is always Walmart jobs.
    I think the numbers expose the real state of our economy.
    Not the shell game being played.

    Also:

    Allot
    al∑lot
    əˈlšt/
    verb
    verb: allot; 3rd person present: allots; past tense: allotted; past participle: allotted; gerund or present participle: allotting

    give or apportion (something) to someone as a share or task.
    "equal time was allotted to each"


    A lot
    Adv. 1. a lot - to a very great degree or extent; "I feel a lot better"; "we enjoyed ourselves very much"; "she was very much interested"; "this would help a great deal"
    a good deal, a great deal, lots, very much, much


    No you misunderstand.

    There's nothing wrong with getting a College degree.

    My point was that its not for everyone AND the Narrative that you can't be successful let alone employable without one is Complete BS.

    I'd rather the costs of higher education be shifted from students. If employers want to require an educated staff, let them help shoulder the burden.

    I'm playing volleyball on the beach tomorrow morning, a week into December. California certainly has its upsides.

    No. If students want to earn a professional position and salary, let them shoulder the burden of preparing themselves.

    And BTW, there are employers who will be part or all of an advanced degree.

    Increasingly, it is not only cheaper, but easier and faster to get manufactured goods from China than the USA.

    Good luck on that one. There are plenty of educated Chinese and English-speaking Indians and Filipinos who want a job.

    We make higher education "less expensive" to the individual by increasing the amount covered by the government. But we're not particularly on topic for the monthly factory order data.

    But we're not particularly responsive to the needs of business, so I can't see charging them for it. They already do a lot of their own training. For example, my son received a degree from a state school in graphic arts and marketing which the taxpayers subsidized. Meanwhile, he makes great money working in the oil patch, but his employer trained him in the particulars of running the tools and computer software they use to drill the wells. Someone with only a high school diploma could do the job, but the employer requires experience or a college degree, normally in something like petroleum engineering or geology. It's overkill, really.
