Liberal arts degree jobs are more available*in a diverse range of fields than ever before. According to the most recent salary survey published by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) average starting salaries for liberal arts majors have risen to about $40,000, annually. New opportunities in consulting and entrepreneurship emerging from co-working environments where start-up enterprises or projects requiring everything from content, to foreign language, social metrics, and graphical illustration, have increased the ceiling on compensation.

yes, that's what happens under the tyranny of communism.

THAT'S your idea of ideal?!

(and what the fuck makes you think American students' studies aren't supervised? Having graded about a gazillion test papers in 25 years, I can assure that's not true.)
Thanks from Hollywood and Clara007

Plumber: Salary Details
The median salary for a plumber was $50,620 in 2015, the BLS reports. The best-paid pulled in about $89,720, while those in the bottom 10 percent earned $29,680 a year. The metropolitan areas that pay particularly well include Bellingham, Washington; Long Island in New York; and Peabody, Massachusetts. Apprentices who are just starting out could make 30 to 50 percent less than a fully trained plumber.

While the US snowflakes are busy shutting down speech at night and disrupting education, the Chinese college students have compulsory and supervised study.
Are you completely out of your fucking mind?
WTF is a degree is "snow-flaking" or 'safe places", "disrupting speech?"

You a fucking Commie now?

Fuck off. You're just playing the horse's ass, and it's getting really tiresome.

(not to mention, I'd be a graphic designer for 40k over being a plumber for 50k ANY DAY OF THE WEEK)
Thanks from foundit66 and Hollywood

These RW are losing their fucking minds. Accusing us of attacking free speech, etc and then singing the praises of a repressive totalitarian Communist regime.

Dumbfuckians from Dumbfuckistan, they have very own country and everything. The flag in Jimmyb's avatar is theirs.

I think they worship Lord Lard-Ass as a God-King, Jimmyb heads the ministry of dumbfuckery.
Thanks from RNG

I'm sure he would consider my BFA and two MFA degrees in theatre 'useless' - even though they have afforded me a comfortable lifestyle, a relatively early (55 years) retirement, a well-traveled and cultured existence, and raised my son in relative middle class privilege.

I have no doubt he finds "useful" degrees would be in plumbing, electrical work, sewage repair and upkeep, computer coding, and farming.

you should know I had fellowships for both my masters, so they actually paid ME to get them.
