dkmullen @robeleader -okay, there is not a demand for slackers. Read into it what you will. There will never be a demand for them. Those that try to take the easy route will never be successful, well they will be successful slackers.
robeleader @dkmullen - a lot of sciences have high unemployment as well. Biology, chemistry, physics. Either unemployed or not employed in their field. So no, it isn't just studying hard subjects it's studying useful subjects which are in demand (if you like them).
SarahAnneBower Well the robots will soon be doing all of our jobs hence we will not be needed by those in control anymore and then what? I see another Terminator scenario coming up in the not too distant future. Just saying that technology can be good and evil at the same time and how much easier do we really want things.
dkmullen @JCMasterpiece - one of the issues is that the people attending college do not want degrees that take any kind of effort on their part. Look at the number of recent graduates that major in History, English, Political Science, Liberal Arts and Physical Education. Engineers and Scientists are on the decline. And those 50% of recent college graduates wonder why they can't get a job.
JCMasterpiece This is a very complex question. More can be done faster through automation or cheaper than by hand. As such it creates a lack of need for people to do more and people lose their jobs. At the same time, there is more of a need for specialized / specially trained workers that require more education / training etc.
dkmullen Obama Administration claims they are creating jobs. The Obamacare raised taxes on 77% of all Americans. Those are the people actually collecting a paycheck. This shows the actual unemployment rate at 23% not 7.8%
