If you want to be a physician or a vet, its likley you will not graduate till 26 as indeed with a PhD when 27 or 28 might be the case. (Note that if in college you had the option of the college's plan even before Obama care). If you consider the need for education to get a job nowadays it means that the likely minimum age to start working is at least 20 (allowing for time for a technical education) or 22 with a 4 year degree etc. So a major part is the increasing complexity of jobs and the education needed to get them.
