There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

Title :
  Improving Career Outcomes for Youth: Lessons from the U.S. and OECD Experience
Release Date :
Abstract :
  High youth unemployment and weak systems of career preparation are continuing concerns for modern societies. Over the last two decades, youth unemployment has become less of a priority issue in the United States, as policymakers increasingly focus on the quality of education and training. Other members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) are continuing to emphasize the problem of youth joblessness even among workers in their early 20s. This paper reviews the lessons from the experience in the United States and other OECD countries about the diagnosis of these problems and what policies have worked to help young people obtain jobs and enter productive careers.
