People with degrees earn 1 mil more USD on average in their lifetime
Maybe this is true, or was true back when I was in 8/9th/10th grades where they preached collage like falcons calling to one another for buttfuckings.
But whats 1,000,000/ let's say 55 years (starting from 20, living to be 75) that's 18181.81 per year.. WOW! Wait.. that's 336$ per paycheck, holy crap that'd double my old income.
Oh wait..that's bullshit becuase there are plenty of shlups out there with $100k+ in student loans that can barely find a mediocre paying job. There are a very very thin set of skills people can study for, have a extremely high employment rate, as well as have a overall much higher earning average. Some computer skill sets, some engineering skill sets, and a few other random as fuck jobs.
The whole collage for success has been bullshit for the last 10 years, at least. Tuition keeps climbing to record highs, and students are not getting anything out of it. At least the majority. It's societal norm to go to collage for success, this has been engrained into us for as long as we can remember, when I was a kid, collage used to make a huge difference, now that I'm 21, it means almost nothing unless you have a very specialized degree, or know someone wayyy up in the ladder to get you in.
