For young workers, job market can be tough

We read an interesting article on MSNBC that we need to share. There is a lot of debate as to the validity on both sides of the argument, that is, the difficulty for young people to find decent jobs in their chosen fields compared to past generations and the reasons why this may be so.

This article was written by Eve Tahmincioglu for MSNBC:

Are many young adults today just not trying hard enough to launch their careers and gain financial independence?

My June 4 column addressed how many parents were struggling to help get their adult sons and daughters on the right career path. I suggested their kids needed a little bit of tough love. Mom and Dad can’t keep the gravy train going forever, right?

Well, I got a bunch of letters from folks who thought I was being too hard on recent graduates who couldn’t find jobs in their chosen professions.

Some readers pointed to a lack of economic opportunities for U.S. workers thanks to globalization and a growing chasm between the rich and poor. It’s harder today for young people trying to make it in the world than past generations, many of you wrote.
