There are degreed engineers looking for work at McDonalds right now. Do not underestimate the job market. It is very poor right now. VY's name recognition might get him $75K a year but his degree would get him maybe half that.
Are those local numbers?
I'm pretty sure from Mississippi to Mexico a double E can be in the mid 80s within 5 years. Probably starting in the 70s.
I also know a GM at a local retail store knocking down $90K with a Management degree. & when I say local, I mean the Golden Triangle.
