Education is the way for low-wage workers to move into the FTE sector, as moving to the city was the way to advance in the original Lewis model. Just as slums show the difficulty migrants face in finding good jobs in cities, black and Latino graduates face difficulties finding good jobs in the FTE sector. These difficulties are increased by lack of state support for public universities, leading to increased tuition and the growth of student debt. They are increased further by for-profit colleges that often lead to debt without promising employment.
