The price of not having a college degree hits a high.

FOX's Lilian Woo reports: 

The pay gap between college grads and those who only finished high school is at its widest point ever, based on information compiled by the Economic Policy Institute.

Those with college degrees not only were more likely to have jobs, they made more in 2015 with paychecks 56 percent fatter. That's up from 51 percent in 1999 and the greatest divide since the think tank started keeping track in 1973.

Income not the only advantage college grads have, there's are also disparities in home ownership, retirement, even marriage rates. Statistics from the CDC finding women with college diplomas enjoy an eight in ten chance their first marriage will last 20 years, double the odds of women without college degrees.
