It's bad timing for young people trying to launch their careers, with the median starting salary for graduates of four-year colleges down 10% since 2006-08, NYT's Catherine Rampbell reports. And those are the lucky ones who found a job. In the class of 2010, just 56% had held at least one job by this spring, vs. 90% of grads from the classes of 2006 and 2007.
