Unemployed College Graduate Sues Her College

Talk about a law suit that doesn't stand much of a chance.

The Guardian reports that Trina Thompson is suing Monroe College in the Bronx for $70,000 because the money she spent on obtaining her bachelor's degree hasn't landed her a job yet.

In my (non-expert) opinion, this court case is going to get thrown out of court faster than a fat man's fork at a smorgasbord.

The story also provided one interesting statistic:

According to a May survey by the National Association of Colleges and
Employers, just 20% of US college students from 2009 who applied for a job had
one when they graduated, down from 51% for the class of 2007.
