This statistic would be significantly more impactful to me if I knew the breakdown of what degrees these implied-to-be-underpaid and over-indebted individuals have. Did they choose a practical field like mathematics, biology, or engineering? Or did they instead go for the writing, philosophy, art, or other liberal arts degree?

I'm not saying liberal arts studies are without merit, but I have strong feelings that they should not comprise a bachelors program. They should be electives and minors. We need to teach people to set a goal or dream and pursue it, but to do so backed by a practical, workable plan. Yes, be an artist. But... until you sell that painting for a couple million maybe you can ALSO be a computer programmer?

My degree is in math, and I work retail. Two of my co-workers have degrees in CS.
