Youth Unemployment...What's Your Solution?

Posted by Thao Nelson - On April 15, 2010 (EST)

"Expand Apprenticeships"  that's what Justin Lahart from the Wall Street Journal suggests as a solution. 

Lahart points out- "The March employment report showed that American workers aged 16-24 had an unemployment rate of 18.8%, nearly double the 9.7% unemployment rate for the population at large. Even though these young workers represent only about an eighth of the work force, they account for a quarter of America’s unemployed."

This rise in youth unemployment is seen worldwide and has huge consequences socially and financially.  Read Lahart's article "Youth Unemployment Surges World-Wide" and let us know your solution!
