It's graduation season, which means all sorts of 18 and 22-year-olds with their hand out, waiting for you to give them a few bucks . . . while you think to yourself, "Yeah, good luck getting a job in this day and age, rookie."

So . . . how much are people giving out for graduation gifts these days?  An online coupon site called asked people the appropriate amount to give.

Here are the results . . .

High school graduation . . . $111.

College graduation . . . $243.

Graduate school graduation . . . $256.

The survey also found the average undergrad now finishes school with around $14,000 in debt. They're gonna have to pick up a LOT of extra Burger King shifts to cover that.
