What Do You Know about Youth Unemployment?
de Lone, Richard, Comp.; Long, May, Comp.
This brief booklet outlines the facts of the youth unemployment problem and details some strategies which have proven effective. In 1981 the unemployment rate was 17.3% for people age 16-21, well over twice the national average for the labor force as a whole. For Black youths the rate was almost 35%; for Hispanics, over 20%; but for Whites, 15%. The first section outlines problems using the question and answer format. The second section offers some suggestions for strategies to combat youth unemployment in the form of a brief case history followed by some suggestions for solving that particular problem. The document concludes with a list of agencies to contact for further information. (CG)
