dc.description.abstractUsing data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) this paper compares the labour market faced by today's teenagers with that of the previous generation. The contention of the paper is that the youth labour market has deteriorated over the last three decades and is now much less favourable than that which faced the parents of today's teenagers. Findings revealed that teenagers now face a highly competitive and limited labour market where most jobs are part-time, low paid and casual. Full-time jobs are hard to find, and those who cannot find them compete with school and university students who want part-time work. Moreover, many teenagers are forced to look for several part-time jobs to make ends meet. Competition from married women in some segment intensifies the competition further. Possible explanations for these findings along with implications for youths are explored in the paper.en_US
