After nine years of changing schools, dealing with an illness and managing tuition costs, Noelle Johnson has about $20,000 in student loan debt and no degree to show for it. Millions of millennials are in the same boat. Check out the link in our profile for the full story. (Photo credit: @jameswhuclark/NPR) #newboom
logaaaaan : @notalwaysasaint I blame it on high school counselors. They told everyone that you need to go to university to get a job. They looked down on vocational training and any job that didn't require a degree.
divgradrag : @siimonoto
notalwaysasaint : @logaaaaan valid point as well. But, like anything else, intone doesn't take the time to investigate on their own and only takes the word of another - well, caveat emptor. Think about it. One is about to spend $100,000 and five years of their life (because who really gets a degree in 4 anymore?. Colleges have restructured credit units that it demands 5 years now) ... why would they only listen to the guidance of municipal employee.
lynxoid84 : when I went to college, I chose my major based on employability. My profession is in high demand, and I am looking forward to paying off my 17K once I'm done with my PhD. Loans allowed me to be independent during B.S. and M.S., and PhD pays for itself.
carolinasirias : @val_dancer97
lampyridae__ : 🙋Me too! I graduated in 2012 with my MLIS and haven't been able to land anything but part time jobs as a temp. Counting done to the last few months of forbearance on my 40k+ student loans. Growing up in school they told us "you can be anything you want when you grow up." They lied.

meganej24 : @alyj24 just a huge issue. 😕

Several years ago, South Carolina had a problem: a shortage of skilled workers and no good way to train young people for the workforce. So at a time when apprenticeship programs were in decline in the U.S., the state started a program called Apprenticeship Carolina. After working as an electrician in the Air Force, John Harris was hired into an apprenticeship program at Cooper Standard, an auto parts manufacturing factory, where they combine classwork at the local community college in Spartanburg, S. C. with on-the-job training. Here, Harris makes a weld during class. (Photo credit: Mike Belleme for NPR) You can read more about manufacturing in the U.S. in our American Made series on NPR.org! #americanmade #manufacturing

miket1099 : This is the best thing I have heard in a long time trades are@the vest thing in this country the back bone. Kids need to know these jobs are there and be taught how to do them
eyesofzorro : Such a shortage; answer to some of the unskilled problems we have in Africa!
