March Unemployment Numbers and Young Americans

WASHINGTON, April 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Generation Opportunity President Paul T. Conway, former Chief of Staff of the United States Department of Labor and the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) responds to the March 2012 jobs numbers:

"The March unemployment numbers remain unacceptably high for all Americans, and especially among young adults who continue to suffer the consequences of a poor economy and failed economic policies at a historically high and alarming rate. Young adults overall, young adults in minority communities, and young adult men and women are doing everything they possibly can to make ends meet, yet millions have already paid a steep price in delayed dreams and interrupted careers. They know a successful economy is measured not by how many people drop out of the job market each month, but rather by the number of people who find meaningful full-time jobs in the careers of their choice. Young people want solutions that create more economic opportunity for every American and view elected leaders who offer anything less as disingenuous and completely disconnected from the hardships they and their friends have already endured."
