There are too many CS grads chasing too few jobs

"Many college graduates are finding it difficult to enter the information technology world with little or no work experience."

In other words, the demand for IT graduates isn't there any more. This has been obvious for years. The big corporations have been telling politicians that they need more technical people, but what they really mean is, "We want cheaper technical people".

A student who chooses CS as his/her major in the US is either badly-informed, or not very smart. Or maybe comes from a rich family and doesn't expect to have to work.
