Job prospects slip for those without a college degree, report finds
Chicago Business - 12/10/2012
Economic changes exacerbated by post-crash weakness have really whacked high school dropouts here, with only a third of dropouts aged 20 to 24 in the metropolitan area reporting that they have jobs. But perhaps surprisingly, young adults who finished high school but not college have been very badly hit in the Chicago area, too.
So says a report being issued today by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston. Chicago’s Alternative Schools Network commissioned the report.
