when politicians go on about how universities need to prioritize STEM and other disciplines that are more "job-ready", ask them what their undergraduate degrees are in. How many lawyers are politicians with humanities degrees?

My bet is lots.
Here's Andrew Scheer -
"In 1998, Scheer began his Bachelor of Arts (BA) studies in criminology,[28] political science, and history at the University of Ottawa" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Scheer
here's Erin O'Toole

"He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and political science in 1995." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erin_O%27Toole
Christine Elliott

Paul Calandra

"Calandra studied history with a minor in political science at Carleton University." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Calandra
the fact is that all university degrees are valuable. And graduates from all programs end up with valuable work.
