Completion Matters – 3

From Sunday’s NYTimes, Dave Leonhardt writes about the value of college degrees. His analysis indicates that a college degree has economic value even in those occupations where it is not apparent possessing a degree matters. For example, a waiter or waitress with a degree makes 34% more than one without; a hairdresser 69% more; and a dishwasher 83% more.

The main argument contends such attitudes arguing against the value of a college degree are elitist. Worth a read.
