• Showcase Panel I: Youth, Employment, and the Law

    This panel will examine intergenerational equity issues raised by employment discrimination laws, including those protecting the elderly from discrimination. Those laws, minimum wage laws, laws favoring unionization, and laws countering arbitrary dismissal have obvious appeal. But many of those very laws greatly raise the costs to business of entry-level hiring. One consequence may be that many young people are only able to enter the work force as interns or fellows. This may be especially true for minorities. Are these costs worth the benefits? Is there some middle ground? The Federalist Society's Practice Groups presented this showcase panel on "Youth, Employment and the Law" on Thursday, November 13, during the 2014 National Lawyers Convention. --Prof. Richard A.

Most of our youth blame this on the crisis but is this entirely true? Our training course will look at how our youth address the question of education and the choices they make. Are they studying simply to get a degree? Are they studying what they want or what their parents tell them to study? Have they researched their market well enough before going to study or selecting the study path? We will work with youth workers and educators during this training course to help them gain the tools needed to assist our youth to make more informed decisions when it comes to education so that they have a greater chance of finding employment after they complete their studies. We will learn from each other’s experiences and share good and bad practices with each other so that we can offer our youth better knowledge and options for their future. This training course will look at different tools available to help young people understand labour market trends, ways to tweak their educational choices or skills to fit into the labour market needs, and explore the advantages and dangers associated with cross border employment. The main objective is to identify the common problems and mistakes in each of the partner countries and find ways to give youth workers, organisations active in youth work and youth the tools to be more prepared for the labour market before they embark on their educational journey. Focus is also given on those who have completed their studies already and now need to adopt their education or their skills to fit into the demands of the labour markets so that they have a greater chance of employment. The project also covers a topic of illegal migration of young people in the hope to find employment and addresses the dangers associated with this in the hope to help young people understand these dangers and also to explore their options in their own country before considering a legal way to migrate to another country. This project has been funded with support from the European Commission (Erasmus + Programme).

Mayor Edwin M. Lee and the United Way of the Bay Area along with City Departments and private sector employers kicked off the Youth Jobs+ 2015 initiative, challenging employers to create jobs, internships and paid job training for San Francisco youth (ages 14-24 years old). Now in its fourth year, Mayor Lee’s initiative connects San Francisco employers with low-income and disconnected San Francisco youth so that they can share in the City’s economic success and get the practical job experience and skills they will need to succeed in today’s economy. In 2012, President Barack Obama issued a challenge to businesses, non-profits, and government: Work together to provide pathways to employment for low-income and disconnected youth. Almost 100 private sector employers including companies like Starbucks, Old Navy and Square with over 60 nonprofits such as Glide Memorial, the Boys and Girls Club and the Third Street Youth Center and Clinic joined over 55 City agencies to provide San Francisco youth with exciting opportunities that offered valuable work experiences in office work, the arts, computer science, retail, banking, engineering, landscaping and in dozens of other fields. United Way of the Bay Area is leading San Francisco’s effort in support of Mayor Lee’s Youth Jobs+ Initiative along with Department of Children Youth and their Families (DCYF), Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) and the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). The Summer Jobs+ challenge started four years ago. In 2012, San Francisco had a goal to place 5,000 youth in jobs and paid internships; 5,204 youth were placed that summer. In 2013, the goal was to place 6,000 youth; 6,817 were placed last summer alone. In 2014, the program expanded, now called Youth Jobs+, to include placing individuals in employment and training opportunities beyond the summer so that they continue to have the discipline, training, and work exposure; while experiencing the connection between their education and their future careers. As a result, 7,678 were placed in jobs and internships. In California, the latest unemployment figure for youth ages 16-19 is 22.8 percent, more than triple the rate for the general population which is at 6.5 percent. Many youth that have participated in past years were from low-income families. Many youth that have been placed has also been disconnected and at-risk youth who overcame significant barriers including those from the foster care system, the justice system, and those who do not have a right to work. The Transitional Aged Youth Initiative (TAYSF) estimates that almost 9,000 young adults are neither working nor enrolled in school. They estimate an additional 5,000 youth ages 14-24 are undocumented with little or no legal options for employment. Companies from a range of industries have sponsored this public-private initiative including Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Wells Fargo, PG&E (a founding partner), Citi Foundation and Cities for Financial Empowerment. Financial contributions are used to subsidize internships and additional youth summer enrichment programs. Employers that have already committed to hiring youth this summer and throughout the year include the California Academy of Sciences, Starbucks, Levi Strauss & Co., Target, Walgreens, Salesforce, and LinkedIn. Employers or youth interested in participating or learning more about San Francisco Youth Jobs+, go to sfsummerjobs.org or call 3-1-1 or 2-1-1.
