You're right. My degree was political science and I work in a mailroom. I'm 27 now... though I'm working thru getting several IT certs and hoping to break into that field. I make around 40k, so it's not bad for a low stress job where I do probably an hour or two of work a day and spend the rest on the internet.   It's funny though, it really is connections that matter. I see people I know with family/friends/etc getting them jobs even with no experience.
