Students & Youth - Employment

There are specific resources available to provide information for students and youths in relation to employment. Information about rates of pay, job opportunities, work experience programs, and job postings specific for students are all available. The government of Canada offers summer job and internship opportunities, and private sector employers are encouraged to create summer jobs for students aged 15-30 by being offered wage subsidies. There are many community organizations and private companies who also specialize in helping youths and students find employment, by offering career counseling, help with resume writing, interview skills preparation courses, and specific job listings geared towards students and youths. Do you have a youth at home who is looking for an age-appropriate job? Are you wondering at what age they can start working, and what the average rate of pay is? Would you like more information about the various government-provided resources in your community to help a student or youth find and keep a part-time or summer job? Or are you a small business owner interested in being subsidized for hiring a student this coming summer? There are many resources available, and we have them for you here.

Youth Identities, Education and Employment

Exploring Post-16 and Post-18 Opportunities, Access and Policy

This book investigates how policy, family background, social class, gender and ethnicity influence young people’s post-16 and post-18 employment and education access. It draws on existing literature, alongside new data gathered from a case study in a UK state secondary school, to examine how policy changes to the financial arrangements for further and higher education and the changing youth employment landscape have had an impact on young people’s choices and pathways. Hoskins explores a number of topics, including the role of identity in young people’s decision-making; the impact of changes to young people’s financial arrangements, such as cuts to the Education Maintenance Allowance and increased university fees; and the influence of support from parents and teachers. The book will be of interest to students and researchers of Education and Sociology.

Child and Youth Employment Standards: The Experience of Young Workers under BC's New Policy Regime

Labour Productivity, Investment in Human Capital and Youth Employment

Comparative Developments and Global Responses

Unemployment levels are on the rise nearly everywhere, and the rate is particularly high among young people. If this trend is not reversed, the potential long-term economic and social damage is incalculable. For this reason a particular urgency attended an international conference on the subject held in March 2009 at the Marco Biagi Foundation in Modena, Italy, in the course of which specialists in labour law, human resources management, labour economics, sociology, education, and statistics met to present and compare research. This issue of the Bulletin of Comparative Labour Relations includes a selection of the papers presented at that conference. Although the selected essays present findings on specific issues in particular countries, the general applicability at the global level is evident. Assessing measures taken to deal with youth unemployment in thirteen countries (Italy, Spain, Russia, Sweden, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Poland, Israel, Nigeria, the United States, China, and Singapore), twenty-five leading authorities describe and analyse such aspects of the problem as the following: vocational education and training; quality of employment as well as quantity; links between educational institutions and local, national and international enterprises; consultation and co-operation between employers' associations and trade unions; job security vs. employment security; funding for postgraduate programmes, internships, and on-the-job vocational training; career development for future managers; safeguards for workers in a framework of flexibility; labour market pressure from unskilled immigrant workers; 'earn-as-you-learn' schemes; work in the informal economy; and the rationale behind the phasing out of passive labour market measures for school leavers such as unemployment benefits.

Part-time Work and Youth in Transition

A longitudinal study of 2,378 Australian teenagers from their ninth year in school in 1980 until 1983 provided data on the significance of part-time employment in young people's transition from school to the world of work. Those studied were attending 26 different secondary schools in Australia's Victoria State in 1980 when data were first collected. Many had left school by 1981 and 1983 when subsequent data collections were made. Interviews were conducted in 1983 with 30 of those surveyed and with 48 other secondary students as well. The study considered part-time youth employment in the light of the potentially interrelated influences of family, school, and work, other economic and social forces, and the social and personal development of young people as well. The purpose was to generate information that could assist in youth policy development. Six basic areas were investigated: the nature of part-time work undertaken by youths; the characteristics of young part-time workers; the reasons young people work; and the impact of part-time work on career development, social and personal development, and school-to-work transition. The report discusses the study methodology, the study results, and implications of the findings. (PGD)

Political Revolt and Youth Unemployment in Tunisia

Exploring the Education-Employment Mismatch

This book discusses youth unemployment in post-revolutionary Tunisia, paying particular attention to the so-called skill mismatch. Youth unemployment was one of the major factors triggering the Tunisian revolution, and continues to be a central socio-economic challenge. The Tunisian labour market is marked by a strong increase of higher education graduates while the economic system is dominated by sectors mainly employing a less qualified labour force. This study investigates current labour market trends, and provides insights into the underlying causes of persisting high youth unemployment. The author argues that economic crisis, difficult political conditions since 2011, and inefficient labour market policies did not foster sufficient job creation, and that special attention needs to be paid to the educational causes of the skill mismatch in youth employment in future sustainable development models.

Young People, Inequality and Youth Work

Productivity, Investment in Human Capital and the Challenge of Youth Employment

From an international and comparative perspective, young people’s access to the labour market is a complex issue with certain contradictory aspects reflecting the level of development of labour law and industrial relations in their respective countries. In the most advanced economies, there has been a steady increase in the age at which young people exit the educational system and enter the labour market, giving rise to significant economic and social problems. The increase in levels of educational attainment is associated in some cases with an alarming rate of unemployment among those with academic qualifications, while employers encounter considerable difficulty in recruiting workers for unskilled and semi-skilled positions. The economies of developing countries, on the other hand, are characterized by different trends, reminiscent of the early stages of modern labour law, with the large-scale exploitation of young workers and children, many of whom join the flow of migrants towards the more highly developed regions of the world, with the consequent risk of impoverishing human capital in the country of origin. The ADAPT Labour Studies Book-Series has in connection been set up with a view to achieving a better understanding of these and other issues in the field of Labour and Employment relations in a global dimension, through an interdisciplinary and comparative approach.

Youth, Jobs, and the Future

Problems and Prospects

While overall unemployment has declined, the unemployment rate remains nearly twice as high for young people 16 to 19 years of age and nearly three times as high for those aged 20 to 24. Rates of unemployment and underemployment are nearly two to three times higher for Black and Latino youth. In Youth, Jobs, and the Future, Lynn S. Chancer, Martín Sánchez-Jankowski, and Christine Trost have gathered a cast of well-known interdisciplinary scholars to confront the persistent issues of youth unemployment and worsening socio-economic precarity in the United States. The book explores structural and cultural causes of youth unemployment, their ramifications for both native and immigrant youth, and how middle- and working-class youth across diverse races and ethnicities are affected within and outside the legal economy. A needed contribution, this book locates solutions to youth unemployment in economic and political changes as well as changes in cultural attitudes.
