Underemployment rate hits 40 year high.


An analysis of youth “under-utilisation” has found that underemployment rates amongst young people are worse than those seen after the 1990 recession. The analysis, administered by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, found that more young people are working part time or casual jobs than the year 2000, while the current rate of youth underemployment (18%) is the highest witnessed since 1978.
