Elderly More Likely to Be Employed Than Teens

Elderly More Likely to Be Employed Than Teens | People Transform Organizations |

The Wall Street Journal today reported that teenager’s work rates plummeted during the recession and have seen little recovery since. More than 40% of teens worked in the summer of 2007. This year, less than a third did.

Karl Wabst's insight:

This is what culture change looks like. Is this why companies say they cannot find qualified workers? Perhaps they are looking in the wrong age bracket.

What does this news mean for your company, your parents, grandparents or teenagers? Should it affect your hiring and training?
