    There's also the matter of unjust constrictions on human capital acquisition by younger people because of age restrictions that hold them in a very specifically regimented form of compulsory schooling.

    Not sure exactly how to take these numbers, as it's unclear how they're calculating it. I also can't find comparable numbers for previous years.

    Considering that the majority of this age group is attending school full-time, I'm a bit skeptical of taking this as a sign of the apocalypse.

    Considering that most states only compel attendance through age 16, I doubt that's really affecting these numbers.

    pretty much everybody I knew, while going to college, had jobs.
    has there been a major shift?

    I don't think you understood the fundamental nature of my point. Compulsory attendance during any significant portion of adolescence is bound to be problematic, because we uphold a culture that encourages strict age-based regimentation well past biological adulthood rather than the pursuit of one's preferred initiatives even when a person's ready to make informed decisions about them.

    Yes the correspondence course in bills and laws pretty much cleared that up…. Your sessions on the couch hasn’t seemed to have helped you from your penchant for posting drunk though…sad.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Lots of people worked, but not many worked full-time, which is how they may be calculating unemployment.

    And I very much doubt that there's any way to measure this, so I'll just drop it.
