Honest University Teaches Us College Is A Total Scam


Screenshot 13

“Honest University” depicts college as exactly what it is versus what it’s supposed to be. College is supposed to lead to a degree, a job and then money but really it only leads to the degree part these days. The video humorously points out how you can be lame and work at McDonald’s or you can be glamorous and work at McDonald’s with a college diploma! We were promised by baby boomers that college was the only way to succeed because they came of age during a time of affluence and prosperity. Then slowly but surely they eroded that thriving economy. You can thank a certain President for increasing spending while lowering taxes. That’s how money works right? You spend more and make less! Hahaha, if only those tactics worked for us broke millennials.

There are more people in college than there are jobs available to them and while on most days we usually find ourselves crying about it, thanks to Youtuber Nigahiga, we’ll be laughing about it today.
