Re: Seriously snowflake?
Plenty of UK people with degrees who are doing "McJobs" (shops, restaurants, warehouses, cleaning etc.)- as lots more people with degrees than degree level jobs available.
With proper degrees? Anyone studying politics, history, geography etc may well earn a degree, but they know before they undertake the study it isn't going to be an economically viable choice - there's no career at the end of it to make use of it.
With a free choice of what subject to study, and a well documented shortage of good STEM people, I'm puzzled as to why anyone would be concerned that media studies and art history don't produce a lucrative career. Presumably they're studying for its own sake, which is a worthwhile endeavour, but conveys no requirement on their future employers to pay them more when the knowledge and skills gained have no bearing on the role being performed.
