This is really multiple issues being combined into one problem. People that dont bother to get even bother to get a high school degree or learn a trade get paid to stay home, and/or demand a higher minimum wage. Others that do go to school get useless degrees, such as basically any liberal arts major; and they rack up large student loans and then want them forgiven. We need to stop rewarding laziness, stupidity and poor decisions, there are no participation trophies in business or life.
