The vast majority of young Australians either work full-time, study full-time or do a combination of both on a part-time basis. But, there are some young people who aren’t doing either. They’re what you might call not fully engaged, and we see these people as being at risk. They’re at risk of being either unemployed for long periods, or of only being able to find low paid, insecure work.
In this edition of ABS Presents, we examine whether young people are earning or learning, and what happens to those who aren’t doing either.
