Focus on Education May Reduce Underemployment Right now, better-educated Americans are more likely to get full-time work

Dennis Jacobe, Chief Economist at the Gallup Polls reports that, although U.S. underemployment hit 20.4% on March 23 and 24 -- up from 20.0% earlier in the month -- the underemployment picture for those without a high school diploma is even bleaker. They currently face a 36.2% underemployment rate, and are 50% more likely than high school graduates to be underemployed, three times more likely than those having a college degree, and four times more likely than those who have done postgraduate work. High school graduates are twice as likely as college graduates to be underemployed.
