God help you if you are graduating with a liberal arts degree. You might have a shot if you have a degree in engineering or business, but why would anyone pay upwards of $100k to get a diploma just for the sake of saying you have a college degree? Get smart, college aspirants, and demand better from your schools, or else learn a trade that can be useful to someone.

As a political science degree holder it would be nice if students stopped getting those degrees, then I could get one of those $55k a year jobs and live the sweet life.

So the writer is in a happy cloud, while I am in a cloud of reality. I promise you that this summer, mid summer, the recession will hit right here in America. And jobs of any kind will be hard to find. The lucky $55 thousand kid will be working for the Federal Govt. Now, I know a thing or two about working for the Federal Government. It is and was a fine job. And he will get nice benefits and vacation and sick time. I was there and I know all about it. But how many kids will get that kind of an offer? Few. Greece is folding; France is in deep debt; Spain is in its own terrible recession with 24 percent of unemployment; Ireland is there too and; Italy and Portugal are on the losing edge and watch out for them. So, all in all, the ink is dark. Very dark. I feel bad for you students, but all I can say is good luck for you. You will need it.
