A Significant Windfall

America’s newspaper of record reports that the average lifetime earnings of graduates who have earned a gender studies degree rose sharply to $10,000 this week. The report also notes—

[s]ome college graduates with gender studies degrees are actually hitting up to $20,000 if they received Pell grants, doubling the most common average of $10,000, and being more than $20,000 over the previous average of $0.

  1. I’m not sure if “earnings” is really the correct word. Wouldn’t that mean they would have had to do something productive at some point, to earn the money?

    Maybe “income” would be a better choice of word.
