    Mostly missing the point

    Everything in the article is relatively even-handed and I was even somewhat sympathetic, until we get to the real crux of the problem:

    "She recently received a raise and now makes $22 an hour working for a photographer. It's the highest salary she's earned since graduating with an inter-disciplinary degree in religious and women's studies.



    Does anybody think this would seem such an insurmountable problem if she had a degree in a technical or engineering discipline? Perhaps she might even have learned the logic to question her financial choices in a course of study which included actual knowledge.
