Recession's toll: Most recent college grads working low-skill jobs

The tough economy and tight labor market have tarnished the luster of a bachelor's degree for young college graduates seeking employment. New monthly survey data find that during the first four months of 2009, less than half of the nation's 4 million college graduates age 25 and under were working in jobs that required a college degree. That's down from 54 percent for same period last year.
