The New York Times recently ran an article entitled "More Young Americans Out of High School Are Also Out of Work" which discusses the lack of current and future employment prospects for high school graduates. It’s unfortunate that high school graduates face such a bleak employment outlook which is slowly progressing during this post recession era. With so few jobs currently available, high school graduates without a degree are having a hard time competing with college graduates for entry level jobs. Despite the employment difficulties many high school graduates now face, they are still optimistic about future employment prospects. This article is based on a report developed by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University. The report describes a study that looked at how recent high school graduates who are not attending college full time are fairing in the workforce.
