    Unemployment
    The number of unemployed youth in July 2013 was 3.8 million, compared with 4.0 million a year ago. The youth unemployment rate was 16.3 percent in July 2013. Among the major demographic groups, unemployment rates were lower than a year earlier in July for young women (14.8 percent) and whites (13.9 percent), while jobless rates changed little for young men (17.6 percent), blacks (28.2 percent), Asians (15.0 percent), and Hispanics (18.1 percent). (See table 2.)
    They just can get their parents out of their damned jobs.   Take a long time to pay off student loans without summer and part-time jobs.

    I have three politically incorrect, straight, white male, grandchildren; and I don't care if you think they're important or not.
