Too Much Education

One could have too much education, especially when you are an Asian American. According to a revealing report 'Hidden Disadvantage: Asian American Unemployment and the Great Recession' authored by Algernon Austin of EPI, the unemployment rate of Asian American is about 2 times comparing to white in the population with a college diploma. Language is not a barrier as the conclusion stays for those born in the US.

Combined with well well known and well document information that educated Asian American receives less pay than all other ethnics groups: white, black, Hispanic, it's obvious education is not a good thing for an Asian in the America.
