Want to close the wage gap? Step one: Change your major from feminist dance therapy to electrical engineering.Or, perhaps accounting or programming or nursing. Bottom line: pick a major whose graduates get jobs that pay a living wage.
If the only majors they can complete are the impractical equivalents of "underwater basket-weaving," they should drop out without running up additional debt. A college graduate working alongside high school grads is sad, especially when burdened with student debt which typically cannot be shed via bankruptcy.
