The thing is, Adam, when they said to go to college to avoid flipping burgers, they meant go to college and do a real degree; not history of art, or music or sociology or something like that. Hell even tourism and leisure as some useful application that will get you a decent job.
^ppsssshhh. unemployment seems like its going down lately, sure. but did you know that only people who RECEIVE unemployment benifits are considered unemployed? people who have exhausted their benefits are not counted. the unemployment rate is SIGNIFICANTLY higher than what is reported. even if you get the BEST degree, the fact is that jobs are disappearing. the local and state governments cant afford to open more businesses, and so opening new jobs is getting increasingly harder.
I reckon that if you’re not prepared to flip burgers just because you’ve got a degree, you ARE an entitled asshole. You’ve gotta start somewhere and if you need money to get by, what is wrong with doing a menial job until you find something better? Stop being such a snob and flip burgers if thats what you need to do to get by.
