What's the value of a college diploma today?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about job prospects for today's college graduates.

How does the job market look like for this year's graduates? Join us live at 10 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What kinds of jobs are available to college graduates? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
