As Obamacare looms, Generation Opportunity releases final Millennial Jobs Report of the summer
Washington, DC – (9/6/13) – Generation Opportunity, a national, non-partisan youth advocacy organization, is announcing its Millennial Jobs Report for August 2013. The data is non-seasonally adjusted (NSA) and is specific to 18-29 year olds:
Evan Feinberg, President of Generation Opportunity, issued the following statement:
“As the summer draws to a close, young people are no better off than we were three months ago. Practically all of the jobs created this summer were part-time, and precious few even went to young people. Worse, the looming threat of Obamacare offers employers little incentive to transition any of those jobs into full-time positions.
“Young people are recognizing there is little to like about Obamacare and a whole lot that hurts them financially and personally. Once open enrollment starts next month, I’m confident that millions of us are going to opt-out of the law’s doomed-to-fail exchanges; unfortunately, we can’t opt-out of the disastrous job market Obamacare has also created.”
Generation Opportunity is a national, non-partisan organization advocating for economic opportunity for young people through less government and more freedom.
