That is not a typo.
Are you a college student or graduate with student debt? Did the high cost of college prevent you from continuing your education? Has your student debt kept you from something you’d like to do? The North Carolina Student Power Union wants to hear your story!
For all of those who are in the same boat as I am! Student loans neck high!! We can all join for a beer when we are 70!!
In fact, the incomes of recent college grads are growing so glacially that they make the rest of the country look like we’re discovering $100 bills in our coat jackets every morning. The share of recent college grads who are under-employed is higher than normal, but it’s not that much higher than the long-term average. This week, the Obvious Story received another data blow when the San Francisco Fed found that wages in typical college-grad jobs—young white-collar professions like paralegal work, advertising, and accounting, or higher-paying fields like management, business, and finance—are actually growing even slower than wages for all college grads, combined. Since 2007, overall wages are up 15 percent (not adjusted for inflation), young grads’ wages are up 6 percent, and young-grads-in-business-and-finance are up 2.6 percent. It means that, although there are slightly more NYU-educated baristas and part-timers than usual, the reason young people aren’t making as much money as they expected coming out of school is mostly the result of professional industries freezing entry-level salaries for college grads.
The soaring incomes of campus administrators are paralleled by their soaring numbers. Between 1993 and 2009, their numbers reportedly increased by 60 percent, to 230,000―ten times the rate of growth of the faculty. According to a February 2014 report by the American Institutes for Research, between 1987 and 2012 the number of administrators at private universities doubled, while their numbers in central university system offices rose by a factor of 34. A look at one university system is instructive. Between 1975 and 2008, the total number of administrators at California State University rose 221 percent (from 3,800 to 12,183), compared to an increase in full-time faculty of less than 4 percent (from 11,614 to 12,019). CSU thereby achieved the distinction (since then, rapidly fading) of having more administrators than full-time faculty members. http://goo.gl/QG2ArX
