When I got my degree (back in the late '80s) one could get away with a political science degree and still make a living.
I have a nice and nephew coming up on college quickly, and my advice to them is: Machinist or Nurse, no degree in "art through the ages as expressed by graffiti" or "UFOlogy".
IF you must go to college, get a hard science degree and cure my cancer. Then get a side degree in business so you can bring it to marked without government help.
Part of this is the glut of BA & BS degrees, but mostly, those jobs are not where the future lays. Get a concrete skill, develop your "soft working" skills later - in the real world.
