The point is that when our most educated people aren't getting work it discourages people to get more education overall. That's not good.


The sad reality is that most education no longer in any way prepares you for a life in the workforce. We had an intern start in our department last week, and the kid doesn't know jack shit. It's not his fault, I'm not holding it against him, but what the fuck do they teach him all day? He's getting an MS in Information Technology, but apparently that no longer involves knowing anything about computers, or networks, or basic shit like that?

So is the onus on the workplace, or is it on all these "higher institutions of learning" where you go to learn shit that is in no way applicable to life, except when you and your other hipster friends are sitting at Starbucks lamenting how real life just doesn't appreciate how intelligent you are, and you can do so with all the fancy theorems you learned?
