Obamanomics in Action: 260,000 College Graduates in Minimum Wage Jobs

Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, March 31, 2014, 10:33 PM


The number of minimum wage workers with college degrees is still more than double what it was during the Bush years.

260,000 graduates in minimum wage jobs

 If you thought paying tens of thousands of dollars for a college education guaranteed a high-paying job, think again.

Obamanomics in action…
260,000 college graduates are stuck in minimum wage jobs.
FOX 2 News reported:


If you thought paying tens of thousands of dollars for a college education guaranteed a high-paying job, think again.

About 260,000 people who had a college or professional degree made at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Things may be looking up a little, though — it’s the smallest number since 2008. The worst year was 2010, when the number skyrocketed to 327,000.

Despite the recent improvement, the number of workers with college degrees is still more than double what it was in 2005, prior to the Great Recession.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
