Young and Unemploiyed

I really know a ton of unemployed people. Still, I didn't realize how few people in my age group have jobs:

Only 41 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds reported having a full-time job in 2010 compared to 50 percent in 2006


it isn't just 22 year old college students skewing the statistics either:

In November, 19.4 percent of all men in their prime working years, 25 to 54, did not have jobs, the highest figure since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking the statistic in 1948
