Younger workers, particularly those entering the workforce at ages 25 to 34 years of age, are more highly educated than ever before. This study investigates the extent of over-education among younger workers. It also explores the relationship between education and skills mismatch in the workforce. The research shows that most over-skilled workers have low levels of education and require fewer skills at work than they actually have. The majority of under-skilled workers, however, hold a university degree, suggesting that many highly educated workers have jobs that require more skills than they actually seem to possess.
