Employment Rate For Young Adults Lowest In 60 Years, Study Says
Just 54 percent of Americans ages 18 to 24 currently have jobs, according to a study released Thursday by the Pew Research Center. That's the lowest employment rate for this age group since the government began keeping track in 1948. And it's a sharp drop from the 62 percent who had jobs in 2007 -- suggesting the recession is crippling career prospects for a broad swath of young people who were still in high school or college when the downturn began.

[QUOTE]In Response to Employment Rate For Young Adults Lowest in 60 Years : But how can this be? kirk said Obama`s doing great? All the (dumb-a $$) 18-25 crowd voted for Hope and Change? You mean they didn`t get it? You mean Obama actually made it worse? Say it ain`t so..............

Well they certainly got 'change'...not the kind they expected I'm quite sure.
As for 'hope'...last I checked 'hope' doesn't pay the mortgage or put food on the table.
