Even for Cashiers, College Pays Off
David Lionheart, economics columnist for The New York Times, has written a defense of college education. He argues that "The evidence is overwhelming that college is a better investment for most graduates than in the past. A new study even shows that a bachelor’s degree pays off for jobs that don’t require one: secretaries, plumbers and cashiers. And, beyond money, education seems to make people happier and healthier."
