One of the most discouraging aspects of our slow recovery from the Great Recession is the continued high rate of unemployment, especially for teens and young adults. Maybe I pay more attention because my third son will be 16 next week and is look
ing for a job (he wants a car), but I think this should be an area of concern for all of us.
The ages between 16 and 25 are formative years as people transition into adulthood. To have tens of thousands in our country struggle with employment during this time in their life will have far reaching consequences for our economy and society for decades to come.
The Washington Policy Center, a free market focused public policy organization we often partner with, is part of a study on this problem. Below you will find a link to a survey they would like you to complete. The survey includes a topic video featuring interviews with Attorney General Rob McKenna, former Congressman Jay Inslee, state senator Jim Kastama, and
state representative Cary Condotta. Please take 15 minutes to fill out this online survey. Grant funding for the Washington Policy Center will be awarded based upon the participation they can generate so, WHEN PROMPTED, DON’T FORGET TO SELECT WASHINGTON POLICY CENTER. I hope you can take the time to complete the survey.
