depends on where you go to school. This area, working part time jobs to pay off school isn't an option when community colleges alone cost 150 a credit and the state gets a D- for affordability.

I work with young people in Italy where the the unemployed rate is over 25%. It was thought at one time getting an education would secure your employment future, not so here.
A degree even a first class one will do little to secure you a job unless you have contacts and come from the right families.
In the south and north you can work in the fields along side the illegal African labor force, being treated like monkeys and being paid peanuts. Knowing that you don't stand a chance of ever paying back your student loans. So many realizing this drop out others never even apply for an entry into higher education.
All this talent and so much enthusiastic power wasted while our world is being developed through technology we are responsible for dumping the on the rubbish tips.
