The Rising Cost of Not Going to College | Pew Research Center’s Social & Demographic Trends Project

The Rising Cost of Not Going to College:

"Young college graduates are having more difficulty landing work than earlier cohorts. They are more likely to be unemployed and have to search longer for a job than earlier generations of young adults.

But the picture is consistently bleaker for less-educated workers: On a range of measures, they not only fare worse than the college-educated, but they are doing worse than earlier generations at a similar age."
