The Challenge Ahead

The initial steps of youth in the labour market are often characterised by spells of unemployment and significant job mobility. For some youth, the initial difficulties are easily resolved while others struggle to overcome the challenges they face. The purpose of this chapter is to draw a picture of the challenges facing youth in the United States using aggregate indicators of labour market performance and measures describing school-to-work transitions.
