New Report Looks at the Changing Workplace

Posted: January 2, 2014

An important new report, Failure to Launch: Structural Shift and the New Lost Generation, analyzes the divergent labor market trends for young and older adults since 1980 -- and puts to rest the idea that those trends are contributing to generational antipathy. Anthony Carnavale, one of the report's lead authors, noted in an article in the Wall Street Journal, "There is no generational contest." He added that older people who work will create 22 million more jobs for younger adults by 2020. Failure to Launch is a joint effort by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce and The Generations Initiative.
