Vulnerable Youth and Employment Issues $115.00
Editors: Christopher E. Perry
Book Description:
In an increasingly global economy, and with retirement starting for the Baby Boomer generation, Congress has indicated a strong interest in ensuring that today's young people have the educational attainment and employment experience needed to become highly skilled workers, contributing taxpayers, and successful participants in civic life. Challenges in the economy and among certain youth populations, however, have heightened concern among policymakers that some young people may not be prepared to fill these roles. The employment levels for youth under age 25 have declined markedly in recent years, and the current recession may cause these levels to decrease further. This book explores the vulnerable youth population with regard to schooling, employment and job training programs. (Imprint: Nova)
