What I mean more to say is this going to a great school like Baylor and having a 3.5 gpa etc that a business degree should get you more than a job at McDonalds when you graduate. I mean this isnt a cutthroat third world country where its all or nothing. Kids aren't going to get the best jobs when they first get out but they shouldn't be starving and living with mom and dad for ten years either. There should be a happy medium.

Okay, that makes better sense, and I totally agree with you. Kids that are grown shouldn't still be bumming off mom and dad, college degree or not. A lot of that though is the fault of the parents. For some reason, some moms and dads just love to enable their children. I don't get it, and never will. What happened to raising kids geared toward self-sufficiency and independence?

Some "degreed" people do have a hard time finding jobs though, but sometimes I wonder if it's just not because of the person. They may have a terrible demeanor, no common sense, etc. and the "book smarts" just don't always cut it.

Thanks for your post.

Mostly people in their 20's-40's. I rarely see teenagers anymore! Well, at least in my area I don't!
