    Recession hangover: New college grads still struggling to enter job market

    The recession that began in late 2007 officially ended in late 2009, but some in the job market say we are now experiencing what is called a “recession hangover.”

    Students who are graduating into the post-recession economy are still struggling to find a full-time job in the labor market.

    Carl Van Horn, Director of Rutgers University’s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development joins NewsWorks Tonight Host Dave Heller to discuss what the post-recession economy looks like for a new college graduate.
