Weeeeelll, you;d be suprised, maybe. I have no idea about the actual figures, but starting with people I know who did degrees- many of them are no longer employed in the subject area of their degree, since eitehr there were no jobs, or else they had had enough of the subject by the time they had finished uni. Same with PhD's, by the time you've spent 3 years trying to do something, you may well be fed up with that subject.
Then, the article you linked to is also USA'ian, and as such not representative of what we have in the UK.
Its interesting though. I'll come back to it later, its just i'm a bit busy just now.
