College Grads and Low Wages

Travis Waldron of Think Progress reports on a on a disturbing trend:  college graduates working low wage jobs.  The statistics are a bit confusing, but the bottom line is that even college grads are now having trouble finding jobs that pay well.  Waldron explains that most of the new jobs generated in the post-recession economy have been low wage, which means that will be all that is available for some college grads.  He also notes that these better educated workers will push less qualified candidates out of the job market.  This trend needs to be watched – and worried over.
