Many college grads are underemployed

Many college grads are underemployed in first job, and still underemployed five years later. Look at the chart--the highest underemployment (doesn't require a college degree) is in many of the fields women flock to, and then they wonder why there's a wage gap

Remember, there are reasons to choose a lower level job.  I was a secretary in the Russian Area Center in Urbana, Illinois because I couldn’t get a teaching job in Urbana (at that time you could be denied a job if you had a young child).  Some women choose a lower level job not requiring a college degree so they can have more flexibility.
