You Must Go to College

I just learned that my company requires our receptionist to have a college degree. This isn't a complicated job; this is a typical receptionist job. It's a sit-up-front-and-smile-and-answer-the-phones-if-the-executive-assistants-are-away kind of job. We need to hire a new receptionist and, surprisingly, we received a stack of resumes from women with degrees. In twenty years it's going to be impossible for people without degrees to support their families if they can't get these types of office jobs. Young people HAVE to go to college nowadays. Have to.
