This may be attributed to how many new grads simply do not know exactly what they want to do. Many are eager just to get started on any career path to begin earning income. This is the type of grind many of us have learned to try to avoid.

nah- not unless the grads got put in the demographic of making around 13k a year. The majority of people in the dissatisfied pool are people who are barely making enough money to stay afloat and not enough money (and often not the right skills) to work their way out of the situation.

I have a hypothesis on the bit about age group satisfaction. The demographic swell of the baby boomers are having difficulty advancing to their ambitions. The pre-boomers and the leading edge of the boomers snapped up the choice positions.
