Three in four re­cent grad­u­ates work for less than 800 eu­ros a month

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

ev­ery four (73 per­cent) peo­ple who grad­u­ated after 2011 in Greece col­lect no more than 800 eu­ros per month, while one in six gets less than 400 eu­ros per month, if they have a job, ac­cord­ing to the find­ings of a sur­vey the Foun­da­tion for Eco­nomic and In­dus­trial Re­search (IOBE) pre­sented yes­ter­day. That com­pares with just 24 per­cent of pre-2011 grad­u­ates who get less than 800 eu­ros per month. In the years of the fi­nan­cial cri­sis grad­u­ates have found it much more dif­fi­cult to find work, as the un­em­ploy­ment rate among de­gree-hold­ers soared from 7 per­cent in 2009 to 18 per­cent in 2016.
