28% of Americans aged 20 to 24 are neither in school nor working.
Overall, 26 percent of American teenagers aged 16 to 19 had jobs in late 2009, said the report, which was based on U.S. Census Bureau data. That figure is a record low since statistics began to be kept in 1948, the researchers said.
Only 13 percent of low-income black teenagers in Illinois held a job in 2008 compared with 48 percent of more affluent white, non-Hispanic teens.
The “disconnection rate” — Americans aged 20 to 24 who were neither in school nor working — jumped to 28 percent last year from 17 percent in 2007.
The fall out from this will impact the nation for decades to come.

Those numbers should put the fear of God into you. Those kids constitute the future of this nation. They have no future now thanks to our fascist looting vote-buying over-lords.

This was Amerika in the 1930s thanks to socialist policy, and this will be Amerika again today due to the same socialist policy of looting the public to prop up rich bloated bureaucrats and bankers:

Let us not forget the bloated socialist vote buying ponzi schemes called Socialist Security and Medicare as well! The ignorant unwashed masses demand to be looted at all costs and are willing to give up all economic prosperity for the fake promise of “free” healthcare and “free” retirement.
Those two ponzi schemes are a projected 83 trillion in the hole.
