Gallup: 1-in-3 young Americans underemployed

The 32% of 18- to 29-year-olds last month who were either unemployed or working part-time but seeking full-time jobs was up 2 percentage points from March and marks the highest since May 2011. Gallup’s measurement is not seasonally adjusted.

For older Americans, April underemployment was 14.0% for those 30 to 49, 13.6% for 50- to 64-year-olds and 12.7% for those 65 and up.

In April, the unadjusted unemployment rate for young adults was 13.6% — the same as in April 2011 — compared with the overall rate of 8.3%. The March jobless figure for the 18-t0-29 group was 12.5%. Link
