US Ranked 32 In Youth Employment & Opportunity

With a kid adult entering college next year and two others not far behind I worry about the opportunities they have. So when the US is ranked 32nd globally in employment opportunities for the young it raises a question. Do I suggest my kids start their career in the United States or look globally for the best place to make a life? The Commonwealth Secretariat published a report that analyzes a number of economic, political, health and welfare factors into a Youth Development Index. Whatever you think of the US’ 23rd overall ranking it is worth looking at the 32 place ranking we got in Employment & Opportunity.
