The after-effects of the recession and mounting student loan debt have forced many of today's graduates to take the first decent offer they get.
"These students are graduating with more student debt on average than any previous generation," Brooks Holtom, associate professor of management at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business, told Business Insider. "While there is abundant talk of work-life balance concerns for this generation, the hard realities of debt and low expectations for salary growth emphasize the importance of starting with the best pay possible at the first job."
Millennials find jobs where they can, even if it means starting their career in a job below their education level. And while plans to relieve student debt are a step in the right direction, there aren't any long-term solutions for underemployment currently on the horizon, says Richard Vedder, director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.
A new study reveals that plastic in our oceans...
The question first occurred to the study authors while examining data taken from the 2010/2011 Malaspina circumnavigation research trip that sampled water from thousands of sites across the world.
"This task was not initially in our objectives for the circumnavigation, but the plastic presence in the first samples was striking," Cózar told Business Insider. They found that 88% of their samples contained plastic.
The also discovered that the plastic appeared to be most abundant in areas where the subtropical gyres — giant ocean-wide currents — converged. Where these gyres come together they make huge "conveyor belts," bringing trash from shores into the surface of the open ocean.
Based on the data collected, the scientists expect the surface of the open ocean holds anywhere between 7,000 and 35,000 tons of plastic, which is "far less than expected," they wrote.
