College Grads Often Jobless

Nothing new- just that the mainstream press is beginning to write on this. From author Barbara Ehrenreich's Blog: "[Jared] Bernstein [Economic Policy Institute] says, the wage gap between the college-educated and non-college-educated is beginning to narrow, and this not because the wages of the latter are rising." How many do you know who are under-employed or working at jobs that just pay crap? Not to mention being in the hole from college debt. Uh-oh, guess you're not related to anyone who counts. And this from an article in May of 06!

I'm not spreading this good news to my URI soph son. My mother didn't raise any fools. And him studying business to boot. Oh, well. No good trying to enter the job market now anyway.
