College Grads Move to Big Cities
There are many different reasons why college graduates move to larger cities and the main reason is for money. These graduates are looking for high paying jobs and are driving up the housing costs in these cities. It is also creating a problem for cities that don’t attract these educated people. The article refers to, “the largest predictor of economic well-being in cities is the percent of college graduates.” Graduates bring in and spend money to further help the city. The problem starts with cities not offering the higher paying jobs for the educated; therefore, driving graduates away.
