How much are you investing on it?
Calculate on an average cost of getting employed in a white collar job and return in terms of money. I am talking of investing money only and not other investments such as time, labor etc. People take a student loan for education and repay the same with interest afterward. Normally they repay the loan in installments. Often they pay for whole life or at least for very long time.
Federal student loan consolidation, best consolidation loan student, refinance with bad credit are some of the top search words in US internet. Do you know why these three phrases federal student loan consolidation, best consolidation loan student, refinance with bad credit are so popular? Why are these top paid keywords?
Because people still love to see their children into white collar job that requires a huge investment. They want to be employed as white collar.The youth force in India, America, European Union or anywhere else are also very much interested in finding a white collar job.

Investment in education: Indian context
One has to invest huge money in educating children to enable him finding a white collar job. This cost is similar everywhere in the world. However, we are discussing Indian context here.
An average English medium school in India costs approximately Rs. twenty-five thousands per Annam. It takes fourteen years of schooling that includes two years in pre-primary, ten years in secondary and two more years for higher secondary to complete basic school education.
Joining a professional course requires this minimum basic education. One has to spend Rupees twenty-five thousands per annum for a period of fourteen years. Thus total cost is Rs. 350 thousand. (This is only the cost of schooling, if one takes tuition or joins a coaching institute, cost escalates enormously). It does not seem much as cost of white collar job, but wait!!!
If you do nothing but put that 25000 every year in a bank, it will be 1.5 million! at the end of fourteen years at an average rate of bank interest in India.
Higher education - investment or waste
Can you believe it?
You have to go to a college or institute teaching professional courses for four more years. Now put this 1.5 million on interest for those four years. It will be 2.3 million approximately. You require another 0.5 million for any professional course that makes you eligible for a white collar job. It will be 0.7 million approximately with interest.
Hence, the total cost of graduation in a professional course comes to three million!!! Is not it a huge amount that needed to get a white collar job? This is only for an average institute. Cost is much higher in elite and renowned institutes. However, I am calculating all costs on an average basis.

Lower compensation for white collar job
Compensation for white collar job is not enough. It is much lower in terms of money invested in education.
Unbelievable? Never calculated? Never even thought? Now think for a moment. How much will you get in return in a white collar job??
According to a labor survey conducted by Government of India, only twenty-five percent of the educated engineers and fifteen percent of Management and finance graduates are posted well. So a fair chance of getting a white collar job is twenty percent on an average or only one among five graduates.
If you are lucky enough to get a white collar job and pay package, how much will it be? Normally it will be rupees three to five hundred thousand per Annam. Only very few lucky persons can manage a pay package over half a million.
The pay package of half a million reduces to four hundred thousand after paying income tax.
if you would simply put that three million (you have invested in education) on the interest you could earn anything between three to four hundred thousand per annum. This money is equal to your pay package in a white collar job. A simple calculation shows that either white collars are working free or against a small compensation.
Generally, employers put their employees far from their own native places. The cost of living in those places are generally higher than that of their native places. This is an added disadvantage.
White collar: US to India
They who want to get a white collar job
They worked hard in their schools, got a good grade. They worked hard to get admission into a good institute; they worked very hard again in the institutes to get good grades and to get a chance in campus placement.After all, they get a white collar job.
They are still working very hard to maintain their white collar job and to please and impress their bosses.They are working hard for a hike, increase or promotion.They think that they are getting good remuneration.
General people envy their salaries or pay packets. However, who are earning actually? Who are the gainers? Obviously the employers, the promoters and business owners and in turn the stockholders but not the white collars. The owners of educational institutes have the last laugh.
White collars are the biggest losers in the industry and business. People believe that they are smart. They themselves, their parents, family, friends and the society at large think them smart. Of course, they are smart in appearance, in education, in dress-up, in lifestyle and of course in their work (Without that employer will not continue them in the job).
Think! Think again!! Before reading the next Para.

Are they financially smart?
They are not financially smart.
I have discussed and calculated all these in the Indian context. However, scenes are not different in America, Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia or in other Asian countries. Pay packages of white collars' are higher than India in many countries but the cost of education is also substantially high. Most of the white collars are the biggest losers whether are Americans, Europeans, Australians or Asians. Do you still like to rush for a white collar job?
Can they ever know it?
They will likely to admit their children again into those schools and institutes dreaming about a white collar job for them. They consider getting a federal student loan or to refinance bad credit. This has become their destiny. Only a few financially smart can get rid of this vicious circle. They will learn the art of investing and enjoy the fruits of it.
Ten most stressful white collar jobs
White collar - student loan in Suze Orman show
I saw yesterday in Suze Orman Show:
An American woman is earning $69000 per annum in a white collar job. She asked Suze that she could not save anything out of that because she had a student loan of $ 200,000. It was not specified in the show how much has she repaid and how much she or her parents spent for her. She was asking about federal student loan consolidation, best consolidation loan student and refinance with bad credit despite having a white collar job.
How many people are lucky enough to earn $69000 even in the US? Yet can not save anything!!
N. B. The globe was not started facing recession when this hub was written. Now new white collar jobs almost vanish. Pay packages are drying. What will they do who has not yet got a campus placement for a white collar job? How can they repay their loan?
