Your parents always encouraged you to do well in school, so that you could go to a good college. Once there, they would encourage you to study hard so that you could get a good job. Or at least that was what was supposed to happen. But in the midst of a recession that’s been going on for awhile, most news that we see says that jobs are being lost, not gained.
So what does it matter if you have a college degree or not, if all we hear is that there aren’t that many jobs out there?
