Click on "Unemployment Percent" until the top entry is "0%" then note the "Popularity" of these fields with low unemployment. Not many people are choosing the majors with good employment prospects.
Next, click on "Popularity" until the top entry says "1" and notice the "Unemployment Percent." The most popular majors have poor employment prospects.
So why are students going into debt to major in fields that pay less and have poor employment prospects ? Could it be because the employable majors are HARD ? If so, can we say PART of the problem is because students don't want to work hard ?
Any OTHER suggestions why this is happening ?
