College graduates earn far more money

“College graduates earn far more money,” Monterey Herald – August 30, 2022

The Internet job site Indeed reports that the median wage for college grads between the ages of 22 and 27 is $61,000 a year, while that of those in that age range with only a high school education averages only $37,000 per year. Forbes reported last year that the average lifetime income of college grads is $2.8 million, while that of those with only a high school education is $1.6 million.

And yet President Biden wants to use the taxes paid by the 73% of the population who have not gone to college to pay for the education of those who will make over $1 million more than them over their lifetimes.
It must feel good to buy votes with other people’s money.
