Cool Jobs, That Don't Require College, Are Hiring At A Historically High Rates
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 8 months ago in
The U.S. economic labor force is supporting science and math graduates better than humanities majors. Or, at least this is what the Atlantic says based on Department of Labor Stats. The idea of math and science majors being in more demand seems to make sense but in my own personal circle of friends, I know at least three unemployed engineers who are bitter at the oversaturated industry. So I’m going to take the Atlantic’s articulation of the current state of hired vs. unemployed millennials, with a grain of salt. That being said the jobless rates among college grads are "better" but still suck. According to the Atlantic, the issue is extra stiff for us dumbies who didn’t choose math or science for school. One other significant stat the Atlantic did point out was the rise of non-college labor.
"Meanwhile, something deeper seems to have changed. In the labor market for young college grads, non-college jobs have proliferated faster than jobs that have historically required a college degree."
So, like small business staff and corporate dregs… I wonder which is more substantial. Another post for another time. Till then, I will commiserate with anyone with college debt as a day worker at a non-college gig.
