College Degrees Not Paying Off For All
(WREG-TV) It’s been a tough job market for some college graduates.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 260,000 college grads made at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
Financial experts say the post-recession labor market is responsible for the low paying jobs.
The worst year was 2010, when more than 325,000 college grads made minimum wage.
Experts say things are looking up because 21-states have approved raising their minimum wage.
