Liberal arts graduates face the highest unemployment rates of all undergraduate majors, and some colleges are starting to put big money on the table to make these graduates more employable.

Wake Forest University, a small, liberal-arts school in Winston-Salem, N.C., spent “up to $350,000 a year” to hire Andy Chan as vice president of the Office of Personal and Career Development, according to Susan Dominus in The The New York Times.

In his four years with the college, Chan, whose resume includes running the career center at Stanford Business School and leading a Silicon Valley start-up, has raised more than $10 million — mostly from students’ parents — to build a Google-like career services office with video displays, snacks, and nearly 30 staff members to offer “concierge-like services to students,” he tells Dominus.

There’s pretty much everything that is wrong with the world in a nutshell. Parents send their kids to college to get a degree that doesn’t have a lot of employment potential, then spend more money to set the kids up with someone who will hold their hands and get them snacks while looking for work that they aren’t qualified for.

It’s “everybody gets a trophy” with very expensive trophies.

And we’re surprised when people elect an idiot president based on feelings alone.

I'm trying to figure out how humans who are 18 years and above can elect a preezy who then declares them children eligible for their parents' healthcare until they are 27.

And they weren't even offended by that. And they live in their parents' basements wondering why their degree in womens' studies are landing them $125k jobs.

O'er the land of the freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeBies.

Old historical pattern.
In Imperial Rome, the Praetorian Guard would support a "candidate" for Emperor who promised them big bonuses.
Those reaching for the throne have always traded imperial largess for support.
