Youth employment across Massachusetts, however, is at a historic low. A study released by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University said that only 27 percent of people aged 16 to 19 were employed in 2012, a 54 percent decrease from 1999. Employment is at its lowest point since World War II.
