One thought on “Are Young Adults Dropping out of the U.S. Workforce?

  1. It’s pretty easy to see why youth employment stands to drop so drastically: the current employment environment is overtly hostile to young prospective employees. If you didn’t get that internship in college that gave you the one to two years of experience necessary for an entry-level position- a paradox if there ever was one- you’re SOL. It goes without saying that this pipeline favors the already well-off, because they have the time and money to take these positions that, by and large, are unpaid. And most college students have no idea what they want to do after they graduate (I know I didn’t), putting them in an even tighter bind. The result is that other generations have to pick up the slack when they should be enjoying retirement.

    The younger generation is set up to be a permanent underclass.
