Democrats candidates bemoan "income inequality " but of course pay no attention to why it exists and is growing. Those who aspire to earn higher incomes later in life see education as the key and pay close attention to what they study.

STEM degrees, science, technology engineering, math, are popular, as are careers in technical and building trades such as medical technicians, electricians, plumbers etc.

What do those destined to earn low incomes choose to study? San Francisco State offers a major in sexuality studies. Sullivan University in Kentucky has a professional nanny program. You can study puppet arts at the University of Connecticut.

It doesn't take a degree in rocket science to see who will end up where.
