I can see his logic here. Eliminate the opportunity, and a college graduate instantly becomes a lot less common. That makes sense because we have
more college grads than we have positions for them. The real issue is that the positions they could be getting have been moved to New Delhi India and
given to people that have no degree, only on the job training. I do not think that barring opportunity for people is the best way to go about fixing
a bigger problem. It would just force more middle class people into working three jobs to afford to eat binto beans 7 days a week.

Sorry, but you're wrong. I spent 6 months training a call center for my old job in Bangalore and basic phone agents almost always have a degree. Many
of the front-line employees there had more education than I did. The company we were outsourcing to, for example, required a basic degree to work
customer service in a call center. I know it's the American thing to do to complain about the Indians, and how they speak poor English and are taking
all our jobs, but they are a very educated lot. At least the ones filling in all the jobs being outsourced there. That is a primary reason that
corporations are exporting jobs of this type to India.
Meanwhile, in our corporate headquarters in the USA, the call center was full of highschool dropouts, "just enough-ers" and hipsters.
I currently work for a logistics company, we are hiring more and more engineers out of India. Why? My company pays them the same wage as they would
any American, so it's not cost cutting.. It's because there is a huge pool of young, highly educated engineers to pull from.
While we here in the US are pursuing meaningless degrees in art, media, business, etc.. (generally speaking of course, but go ask 10 people with a
college education what they are studying, you'll be surprised at how many are spending tens of thousands on tuition to learn how to make a bathroom
The people in India understand that someone still needs to be around to run the world. They are producing software, mechanical, electrical engineers
in waves. THIS is why there are so many new jobs there.
