United Kingdom -University graduates increasingly underemployed and underpaid -November 19, 2013

An increasing share of university graduates are working in jobs that do not require an academic education. University graduates are unemployed less often than their lower educated peers; however, in 2013 up to 47% of them worked in non-graduate jobs (compared to 37% in 2001). Despite tuition fees tripling to £9,000 per year, recent graduates also earn 12% less than their colleagues who entered the labour market just before the crisis.
