Experiences and Perspectives of Young Workers


The Federal Reserve Board's Division of Consumer and Community Affairs (DCCA) conducted the 2015 Survey of Young Workers and prepared this report.

Extensive comments, feedback, and technical assistance were provided by the following DCCA staff members: Sam Dodini, Jennifer Fernandez, Christina Park, Jenny Schuetz, and Anna Tranfaglia. Support and guidance from Federal Reserve Board staff members Anna Alvarez Boyd, Joseph Firschein, David Kaufmann, Ellen Levy, and Susan Stawick are gratefully acknowledged. The Federal Reserve also would like to thank the following organizations that provided insights on issues affecting young workers: The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.
