    Youth Unemployment has reached crisis proportions. This is due to the recession and the lack of funds that are available to assist youths in finding adequate employment. More options are needed to assist young people when it pertains to employment. More incentive programs are needed for youths as well as struggling adults who are still having a hard time trying to find a job or health insurance.
