Value of University Education Seems to be Exaggerated

Is this the sort of backward logic today's universities teach? From a BBC News Story about student protests against the proposal of modest liberalization of French labor laws:

"The government says it will encourage employers to hire young people, but students fear it will erode job stability in a country where more than 20% of 18 to 25-year-olds are unemployed."

So because today's rigid labor laws have created mass unemployment, one should not change them? If that is the sort of absurd backward logic that universities teach today, then one can really question the value of universities.
