More Plumbers Less 4yr Degrees in Job Absent Fields

Student Loan Debt has reached $1.5 trillion
On dreams to buy a home a crushing collar
But the crushing student debt gets even worse
As too many students are hit with the can’t get a job curse
Too many degrees are not in STEM and do not for the workplace the students prepare
Black, Lesbian, Gay, Gender or Bisexual Studies will find the job cupboard only bare
Students have been sold an empty bill of goods
By an educational system that has not the job market understood
We need more programmers than majors in art
History majors rarely do well in the job mart
A four year degree without any job granting skills
Means the need for a professional degree like nursing and more crushing student debt bills
Students should heed Andy Rooney who said it best
To potential four year college students he would suggest
"More college graduates ought to first become plumbers or electricians, then go home at night and read Shakespeare."
They would have a great paying job and would not have a crushing debt load from a 4 year college to fear
