A new survey shows that Iris people are the most overqualified for their jobs in Europe.

An astonishing 33% of Irish people in work are overqualified for their jobs.

It seems that too many people here are going on to third level education for the jobs that are here.

This has resulted in a new wave of emigration of educated young people from Ireland to other countries.

It seems that there are too many people with degrees on minimum wage jobs.

Here are the percentages of overqualified people in other countries in Europe:-

33% – Ireland

30% – Spain

28% – Greece

24% – Italy

22% – Netherlands

21% – Britain

18% – Germany

17% – France

14% – Sweden

11%  Poland

It seems that overqualification for a job leads to lower job satisfaction.
