    According to the Employment status of the civilian population 25 years and over by educational attainment HOUSEHOLD DATA
    Table A-4. Employment status of the civilian population 25 years and over by educational attainment.

    Of the 46,915,000 in this category.. 1,985,000 are what??? UNEMPLOYED!
    An unemployment rate of: 4.23%!!!

    Table A-4. Employment status of the civilian population 25 years and over by educational attainment

    Yet we read all about Occupy Wall Street and their college degrees are worthless well yes...there isn't much demand for uneducated people!

    I have 3 nieces who graduated with 4 year colleges BS degrees a few years back. They all have jobs but none of them make over $9 per hour. 2 get less than 40 hours at $8.50/hr. My neighbor is a 50/yr old HS educated retired postal worker collecting nearly $3,000/month pension. He makes 2.2 times for the next 40 years sitting on his ass watching TV than these hard working college degree girls make going to work every day trying to pay for their average $70k worth of student loan debt.
