Young Adults in the U.S. Face Challenges to Economic Opportunity

Today’s youth are competing for 21st century jobs against international peers and they are less prepared. According to research, U.S. youth today are the first generation expected to earn less than their parents. The economic opportunity gap between the rich and poor is widening, especially for underrepresented minorities, making it harder to get ahead.1

  • One in seven young adults ages 16-24 is not in school or working and losing the opportunity to gain crucial education, skills, and work experience they need to get ahead.2
  • Fewer students are completing degrees at both two-year and four-year institutions,3even though 65% of all jobs will require postsecondary education and training by 2020.4
  • Millennials earn 20% less than their parents at the same stage of life.5
