One casualty of a tight labor market? College enrollment
Share Now on:
The announcement of the shuttering of a small college in Milwaukee later this year — one of more than half a dozen in the last year — is a sign of troubling times for higher education. We look at how a hot job market is incentivizing some would-be students to work instead of study, and what that could mean for the future workforce. Also, the Fed is due to release its much-watch meeting minutes later today. Plus, a snippet from the BBC's exclusive interview with Elon Musk. And, how some "drone whisperers" in Ukraine are taking apart the machines to stop critical components from reaching Russia.
