Younger Americans still can’t find a job.

The latest employment numbers have been digested by the millennial lobby Generation Opportunity which pegged August unemployment for all aged 18-29 at 15 percent, including those who have given up looking for work.

Patrice Lee, director of Outreach at Generation Opportunity, said, “15 percent of young people are still out of work and it's no secret why — government is too big, spending levels are too high, and opportunities for us are limited. As we continue to work hard to create opportunities, politicians in Washington continue to impose policies that harm us.”

Below is their report:

Washington, DC – (9/5/14) – Generation Opportunity, a national, non-partisan youth advocacy organization, is announcing its Millennial Jobs Report for August 2014. The data is non-seasonally adjusted (NSA) and is specific to 18-29 year olds:

The effective (U-6) unemployment rate for 18-29 year olds, which adjusts for labor force participation by including those who have given up looking for work, is 15 percent (NSA). The (U-3) unemployment rate for 18-29 year olds is 10.1 percent (NSA).

The declining labor force participation rate has created an additional 1.946 million young adults that are not counted as “unemployed” by the U.S. Department of Labor because they are not in the labor force, meaning that those young people have given up looking for work due to the lack of jobs.

The effective (U-6) unemployment rate for 18-29 year old African-Americans is 22.4 percent (NSA); the (U-3) unemployment rate is 19.6 percent (NSA).

The effective (U-6) unemployment rate for 18-29 year old Hispanics is 15.8 percent (NSA); the (U-3) unemployment rate is 10.6 percent (NSA).

The effective (U-6) unemployment rate for 18-29 year old women is 12.8 percent (NSA); the (U-3) unemployment rate is 9.9 percent (NSA).
