Who fears that their career and education will suddenly be worthless?
Technology takes jobs over in an instant. The economy can outsource and job security is unheard of now a days. Most employers want a Batchelors degree as a minimum, Masters is the new Batchelors. Does anyone else consider this before landing themselves into massive responsibilites like debts, children, and retirement plans? I fear that the economy flux impacts everyone, and very soon there is going to be a unexpected crisis in the world. I am not fear monger, I just see the trends as a whole. I am alone in this?

do you have any data to back this up? otherwise I'm reluctant to share your fear. economic insecurity has always been an issue, but as a society we usually adapt. jobs will change, not vanish.

Fear it? No, for me it is an actuality, but one I chose. I have a BSN and a MA neither I use in the mainstream work force.
