When it comes to the unemployment crisis in the U.S., one group that’s been particularly hit hard is recent college graduates. For the past year the unemployment rate has hovered around 10 percent for college graduates, placing them into the same unemployment group as previous graduates from the classes of 2009, 2010 and 2011. In addition, our overall current student loan debt exceeds $1 trillion. Given this reality, what options are there to help students find work and cut tuition costs?

The answer could be co-ops.

Joining Callie Crossley on Boston Public Radio were Bob Forrant, Troy Onink and Ross Eisenbrey.
