Wage Gaps and Higher Education

From The Wall Street Journal's College Online, a report that the wages of those with undergraduate degrees are not faring as well in the economy as one might expect: "It is in the middle -- where many four-year college graduates work -- that imports, overseas outsourcing and technology seems to be reducing U.S. employer demand most significantly, and thus restraining wages."
