The costs of this recession are falling heavily upon those who are graduating from college. Workforce Management (http://www.workforce.com/section/00/article/26/22/32.php) reports that:
Employers expect to hire 22 percent fewer new graduates from the college class of 2009 than they hired from the class of 2008, according to a new study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
Indeed, one of the outrages of the greed-driven frenzy that fueled this downturn is the impact on generations of younger folks who had little or nothing to do with creating the mess. Yet they will bear the burdens for decades to come.
