College seniors about to receive their degrees are finding the job market a bit less scary than it's been in recent years. But many are still settling for jobs, often low paying positions, outside of their area of study. A government report shows the unemployment rate college grads was 10.9 percent last year. That's down from 13.3 percent in 2012 and the lowest rate since 2007.
These newly minted grads are joining a workforce that's far from happy. An annual survey by the American Psychological Association finds a majority of workers aren't satisfied with their professional growth opportunities. Many workers are also angry that their employers made them sacrifice during tough times, but have not shared their big gains in recent years. The Wall Street Journal is the first to report on this survey.
