The Growing College-Degree Wealth Gap

Aug 6, 2018 · That's a drop of 489,000 jobs for America's most educated. Those with slightly less education aren't doing so great either. From the same set of BLS data — Table A-4 from Friday's report — the number of people working who had some college or an associate degree fell to 37,533,000, compared with 37,648,000 in February.

1. Warren has been citing the following statistic lately

After 20 years, 94% of white student loan borrowers have paid off their debt. The corresponding figure for black borrowers is 5%. Higher levels of need upfront and less opportunity/pay gaps on the back-end.

3. Although things are supposedly better now

My younger daughter graduated law school in the States in 2010 and got her bar exam there (New York). Although she graduated Magna and was Law Review, she could find no work in the USA, and moved back to Germany when the Frankfurt arm of a British law firm offered her a job at €85,000 starting salary. That sounded better than waiting on tables in New York, so bye, bye, USA. She is still here.
