New college grads meet the labor market

What kind of job market will greet this month’s crop of new college graduates? Tomorrow’s Economic Policy Institute Snapshot has the answer.

EPI’s president Lawrence Mishel and economist Elise Gould compare today’s trends in wages and benefits for young college-educated workers to those of 2001, just before the last recession.

The Snapshot will be available on EPI’s website on Wednesday, May 14, by 9:00 a.m. EDT.
