BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Employers don’t value college degrees as much as originally thought, recent survey data shows, and the disdain is behind a restored appreciation for blue-collar job-seekers that bring skill and experience over education.

When asked about the “return on investment” of higher education, a whopping 67% of participating employers responded “strongly no” when asked if they believed institutions of higher education were “graduating students with relevant skills that today’s business community needs.” Survey data showed employers prefer skilled workers over those with a college education and no experience.

“Employers can prefer skilled workers over educated workers,” explained Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “However, one important element that today’s educated workers can bring to the table, is the proper way to literally build stress free safe spaces in a company, for employees to deal with their emotions after someone or something caused them to be triggered. And how to express their feelings when they tell their bosses what they are entitled to, including pay raises on demand along with a reduction in hours.”
