This is the 13th edition in an annual series on the employment and education situation of young Australians. A particular focus of this report is on the transition to work. The question of how successful young people are at moving into the labour market is particularly significant at a time of global economic uncertainty. The report shows two significant long-term trends: (1) the stability of working life for young people has steadily decreased; and (2) Australia’s economic prosperity is consistently not being passed on to many young people.
