According to a report published by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, more than 6.5 million teens and young adults aged 16 to 24 in the United States are neither in school nor working, reaching a new record high since the 1950s.
The report went on to say that only about 50 percent of American teens and young adults held jobs in 2011, with the employment rate for teens aged 16 to 19 falling 42 percent over the last decade.
Of those without school or work, 1.4 million are young parents who can "perpetuate an intergenerational cycle of poverty" as they continue to fail to find work.
