Student fears in 'jobless America'

Graduates worry about leaving school into a bleak labour market.

    Barack Obama, the US president, sounded a positive note on Friday following the reports of a rise in regional employment opportunities when he spoke to workers at a company in the state of North Carolina.

    The president said the US economy still had a long way to go until it fully recovers, and that many people were still suffering the effects of the recession. Among those facing grim employment prospects are university students.

    With graduation time approaching, those leaving school are entering a bleak labour market.
