Abstract/Description:

Following the end of the 1990s national labor market boom in early 2001, the labor market for the teens of the nation deteriorated considerably over the next four years. Employment opportunities fell far more sharply for teens than for any other age group, and they have not improved to any substantive degree over the past three years (2004-2006) despite renewed wage and salary job growth across the country. The overall teen employment rate (36.6%) in the past three years (2004-2006) was the lowest in the past 60 years.
