about 43% of college grads are working a job that
doesn’t need a degree.(5) Plus, the number of job post-
ings requiring a college degree dropped from 34% in
2012 to 30% in 2018 (according to a labor-market
research firm’s analysis of websites like Indeed and
Craigslist).

is too high and we miss it. But that it is too low... and
we reach it.” - Michelangelo, 1475-1564
Perspective 
 After being married for
40 years, I took a careful
look at my wife one day and
said, “Forty years ago we
had a cheap house, a junk
car, slept on a sofa bed and
watched a 10-inch black
and white TV, but I got to
sleep every night with a hot
23-year-old girl.
 Now ... I have a $800,000
home, a $55,000 car, a nice
big bed and a large screen
55” TV, but I’m sleeping
with a 63-year-old woman.
It seems to me that you’re
not holding up your side of
things.”
 My wife is a very rea-
sonable woman. She told
me to go out and find a
hot 23-year-old girl and
she would make sure that I
would once again be living
in a cheap house, driving a
junk car, sleeping on a sofa
bed and watching a 10-inch
black and white TV.
 I never had it explained
that way before!
