College graduates in minimum wage jobs

The Wall Street Journal reports that there were 284,000 college graduates in minimum wage jobs in 2012. And 37,000 of those even had advanced degrees.

I have been saying for years that many, perhaps even most, kids would be much better off learning a marketable trade instead of going to college. Learn electricity, plumbing, welding or any other valuable skill and there will be a high demand for your services and you can make a good career for yourself.
