College Kids in Milwaukee Fear a Bleak Job Market

College has always been thought of as a ticket to fortune and fame—or, at the very least, a steady paycheck. Having scrimped and saved for their kids’ university fees, it comes as a shock to many parents that in today’s economy, a diploma doesn’t necessarily guarantee a job.

College kids in Milwaukee aren’t very optimistic about the outlook in the local job market, either.
