A new report finds that 284-thousand Americans with college degrees were working minimum wage jobs in 2012.  That’s 70-percent more college-grads than ten-years ago, but it’s also lower than the 327-thousand college-grads who did so in 2010.  The report is from the Center for College Affordability and Productivity and finds that nearly half of college graduates from the class of 2010 are working jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree and 38-percent have jobs that don’t even require a high school diploma.  The report was examining whether too much public money is being spent on providing students with degrees that make them overqualified for the only jobs currently available.  (Yahoo)
