Education = Employment

While the overall national unemployment rate is 8.1%, there is a wide disparity based on education levels.

College graduates have a rate of 4.1%, those with two year of college are at 6.6%, high school graduates are at 8.8%, and high school dropouts are at 12%.

Anybody can end up unemployed, but if you have a college degree you have one-third the risk of a high school dropout.
