You want a job? Become an engineer.
Back in 1986 over 14% of all undergraduate degrees were in engineering. Today, only 8% are in engineering.
In 1986 38% of all degrees were in engineering or business, where you could expect to earn a living to support a family. Today, it is down to 28% in those majors. The 10% shifted to Ethnic studies, Gender studies, English Literature, Psychology, Social Sciences, Communications, Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, and Parks & Recreation. See for yourself:
