Does Higher Education lead to Employment?

Maintaining high education standards can directly affect a country's standing in the global economy, states Carrie Lennard, Government, Labour and Education manager at Euromonitor. For example, in the USA, 4 out of 5 people who are unemployed only have primary or secondary levels of education.
