The real-world consequences for failed economic policies continues to plague the U.S. workforce. Just walk into any hotel or Starbucks and talk to the people behind the counter.
A third of U.S. workers under 30 were underemployed in April,according to Gallup.
Compared with older Americans, young adults were more than twice as likely to be underemployed and 50% more likely to be unemployed.
The 32% of 18- to 29-year-olds last month who were either unemployed or working part time but seeking full-time jobs was up 2 percentage points from March and marks the highest since May 2011. Gallup’s measurement is not seasonally adjusted.
