School of Hard Mitts
QUOTE, ROMNEY: "Fifty percent of college graduates this year can't find work."
FACT-CHECK: Romney's was citing an Associated Press report from April that explained how "1.5 million, or 53.6 percent, of bachelor's degree-holders under the age of 25 last year were jobless or underemployed."
COUNTERPOINT: The report was about new college graduates, and new college graduates who are unemployed or underemployed. In other words, jobs that might not be using the "skills" they acquired in college, or jobs that might not be full-time. Does life for half of all college graduates after college suck? Yes, yes it does. But also, it always has. The Real World!
VERDICT: MORE SKETCH THAN TRUE.
