    My oldest has a degree in construction engineering and is working two part time jobs, neither in his field, and neither pays benefits.  If he wants to move to Texas or North Dakota and work in the oil and gas fields he can have a great job, except for that destroy-the-environment thing.

    Many of his friends are in the same boat - excellent students, good degrees, but the jobs are not there.  If Congress was really serious about jobs they'd let Obama fix some roads and bridges.  That would help out around here.

    Destroying education is the other place where young people have been screwed.  Classroom sizes keep rising above 40 students per class, yet thousands of graduates with teaching degrees can't get jobs.  All because non-thinking people want to shrink government. Yet somehow the for-profit education groups seem to find ways to make a profit.
