Recent college graduates trying to make it on their own have truly been living through a lost decade.

Young college graduates are making less money than they made in 2000, according to a new analysis by the Economic Policy Institute. Those working full-time for the entire year made roughly $3,200 less in 2012 than they made in 2000, when adjusted for inflation.

The Economic Policy Institute analyzed the wages of 21- to 24-year-old college graduates who are not in school and don't have an advanced degree.
