For better or worse, BA's are the new high school diploma. The provincial government has set a goal of having 80% of the population with a university or college diploma - a complete reversal from our parents' generation.

Yet the top 3 jobs employers are having a hard time filling are technicians, skilled trades and sales reps, according to Manpower's 2011 Talent Shortage Survey. Jobs that do not require BAs.

So why the push for students to get BAs? Could it be the debt and heavy dose of indoctrination that accompanies the BA?
