During the post-recession years, each generation of Americans have suffered in its own way. The only age group that has managed to go the past year without reducing its unemployment rate is the 20-to-24-year olds.
Young twenty-somethings still have nothing on U.S. teenagers when it comes to difficulty finding a job. And while there are actually fewer teens working today than a year ago, the number of Americans working in their early twenties has actually edged up a bit. So their slightly elevated unemployment rate is probably a result of the fact that more of them are looking for work than any deterioration in the job market. But consider this a reminder that, yes, it’s still a pretty god-awful time to be starting your working life.
