    HuffPo reports that this year up to 85 percent of college grads will be forced to live with their parents because they can’t find sufficient work. For those who are lucky enough to find work, the median salary for 2009 and 2010 grads is $27,000 compared to $30,000 for those who graduated between 2006 and 2008.
