Trina Thompson, 27, recently graduated from Monroe College in Bronx, New York. She hasn't been able to find work. The New York Post reports she has filed a lawsuit claiming the school didn't try hard enough to help her find a job.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:

In New York City, a young college graduate who couldn't find a job did not turn to Washington for help. She went to a lawyer. Our last word in business today is class-action lawsuit. The New York Post has the story of 27-year-old Trina Thompson, who graduated this spring from Monroe College in the Bronx with a degree in information technology - and lots of student loans. She has not been able to find work. So she filed a lawsuit, claiming the school did not try hard enough to help her find a job. And she's trying to get back the $70,000 she spent on tuition.

And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News.
