More than 1 out of every 6 bartenders (more than 80,000) has a college degree, as do 118,000 janitors. You donít think your child will suffer that fate? Think again. More than 53 percent of college graduates age 25 or younger are unemployed or underemployed working in low-paying positions nationwide.
This doesn't answer his question of why he should feel bad about a liberal arts degree in the least. What's your degree in, btw?
