Tyler Wiechman writes about the challenges the Millennial Generation has overcome and the ones the Millennial Generation still faces.
Millennials face many problems. The struggling economy that still hasn't boosted back, a lack of opportunity, student debt levels that have reached the highest in history, and many other bleak outcomes. Recent graduates struggle to find a job and thus go back to school. Many of these students don't realize the bleak outcomes facing post-graduate work without any working experience. It's a vicious cycle. Currently over 60% of PhD students are under employed or unemployed. Many don't get to continue the line of research or work that they dedicated a decade of study to.

Its a shame really. I ask of all of you to do your research before accruing more student debt in a masters program without any employment history in your field. I beg that you look at all the data before spending years of your life on a PhD dissertation.
