to me, one of the weirdest things about our economy right now is the credential inflation 

like my dad got a job as a mechanic when he graduated high school, and he was employed with a high school diploma to a full time job with a union, and had health insurance and benefits. 

at this point, I have graduated from high school, have a Bachelor’s degree, have a Master’s Degree, have two years of experience working in my field, and am a due paying member of multiple professional organizations. And that qualifies me to compete in a two-stage interview process for a part time job that offers no health care. 

This is what decades of stripping the working class of their rights looks like.

Same. And I probably didn’t get it because I’m overqualified.
