Chinese College Grads Earn Less than Janitors, But are Overpaid…

This Tweet shows that college grads in China earn less than manual laborers. Interestingly enough, they produce much less, at least less of value. Factory workers stitch together out T’s and pack things into Iphone frames, while their educated counterparts do little more than pack elevators to the brim and nostrils with two fingers.

All in all, Neither adds much value.
