College students disenfranchisedThere are many college graduates who are out of work, and I believe that the graduates have not been afforded the opportunities to pay back their school loans, therefore the graduates are falling deeper and deeper into debt. Just look around; ask a college graduate what their circumstances are like now that they have graduated from college, such as their economic situation, their social situation and what their outlook for future career opportunities appears to be.
I believe that more disenfranchised college graduates need to have more economic opportunities created through the efforts of the public and private sectors, so that the graduates can share their talents and skills throughout the work force right here in North Dakota. Moreover, an intelligent work force is a sound, safe and stable work force.
So, North Dakota government and North Dakota employers, take a look around and you might be surprised about all of the talent that we have right here in our own backyard. You might want to create more job opportunities for people like us: the disenfranchised.
