China and India also "graduate" FAR more near-slaves than we do. They are huge countries. I do not mean to minimize the problem you are trying to highlight, because it is a very real problem, but perhaps the bigger problem, or the root of the problem is the lack of motivation to learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) skills at any level of education. If kids do not embrace these fields by high school, they cripple themselves for a college education in most fields that lead to a majority of the financially productive and socially useful degrees. You wanna be a doctor? you better know math and science! a bookkeeper? math. Video game creator? Math and technology (and art). etc etc. I will spare you the obvious lawyer jokes.
