<<Apparently among people with a Bachelors degree or higher, unemployment is about 4.1%. That's usually not considered to be high at all.>>

Not even close. Try 8% and up and up.... Only a few specialized areas are below 5%.

I don't think you read what I wrote very closely.

In any case, the link below from the BLS shows that in June 2013, the unemployment rate for those with a Bachelors degree or higher was 3.9%.

So, I'll ask again, what percentage do you define as "so many"?
