New York's Youth Struggling to Find Work

Younger people are having a tough time finding jobs. 16% of New York teens and young adults are neither in school, nor are they working. In a new Kids Count report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, high school dropouts are finding it harder to gain basic entry-level jobs.

That's because they're competing with people who have credentials that employers prefer, like a diploma. Across America, 6.5 million people between the ages of 16 and 24 aren't in school or working. New York has just over 406,000 people in the same age range in the same position.
