Liberty (08941408);Dec2009, Vol. 23 Issue 11, p10
The author comments on "The Dead End Kids," an article by Richard Wilner in the September 27, 2009 issue of the "New York Post" about the rise in the unemployment of young people in the U.S. to a post-World War II high of 52%. He supports Wilner's observation that the economic team of U.S. President Barack Obama failed to include people with a background in small business, a key contributor in new job creation. He also cites the rise in the minimum wage as deterrent to young people's employment.
