Ryan McVay/Digital Vision/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Many Americans may be working in jobs for which they’re over-qualified.

The Center for College Affordability and Productivity calls it the “new normal” — there’s more college graduates and fewer jobs that require a college degree.  The result is millions of workers with degrees in jobs that require no advanced skills.  

The study’s lead author has long argued that too many Americans go to college, and his critics dismiss his latest analysis of government employment data. 

The unemployment rate among college graduates is significantly lower than the national average, and college graduates consistently earn more than those without a degree.
