The national unemployment rate is falling - down now below the pre-recession levels. Younger workers, though, are struggling to find work and Nevada is one of the worst states for high school and recent college graduates to find work. So what are the problems? We discuss the struggles the current generation of people leaving high school and college face. and what should be done about helping young people find real work and not merely a string of part-time jobs.
