If you were an employer and/or owner of a company looking to hire professional level employees,
which would you rather hire a recent college graduate with Mcjob(non-college jobs) experience or an unemployed college graduate who chose to wait until the "right" job came along because he/she felt that the Mcjob was beneath him/her educationally?
Most employers want someone with a degree of experience in the field they are applying for, even if they are a recent college graduate. It is probably good to have an entry level job in that field, even if it is something really basic, before you obtain the degree.
If they've never worked and they're at graduate age then I'd be worried that a full time job might be a bit of a culture shock for them, if I were the employer. Also, no matter the job, people who have been employed develop in ways someone who has never worked will not. It's all experience, even if it's not immediately obvious how relevant it would be to the job in question.

"I'm very punctual." That was my response when a woman asked me why I am a good worker during a phone interview. "Okay," she responded, "but what would your current supervisor have to say about you?" Jeez, I thought. There is nothing positive he could say, especially...
