Pro to the question "Is a College Education Worth It?"
"Even if you get a degree in a major that didn’t have very good luck, let’s say liberal arts, and you work in a job that didn’t require a degree, those people still earn higher wages than people who just had a high school diploma, by far.
...Because you are getting skills by getting your degree, no matter what your major is, those skills are going to help you no matter what your job is and those skills are going to help you continue to move up the ladder... So there are significant differences in terms of what wages you can expect to earn with a degree, even if you don’t find your dream job right out of college.”
