Here’s some rare good economic news …

A new survey says an increasing number of employers are considering new college graduates.

About 57% of employers say they plan to hire new college graduates this year – which is up from 53% last year and 44% in 2010.

The fact that more companies are hiring new grads is positive news – even if starting salaries are still a bit low.


Getting college graduates into the workforce – whatever the salary – is a great step for them and an important boost to the economy.
