8. They didn't lose their jobs for lack of skills.

They lost their jobs because someone in India or China or wherever is now doing them for less money. They are not uneducated nor unskilled; that's a RW talking point. They're simply too expensive. Getting another degree won't change that, although it will put more money in the pockets of the education industry.
