Over 92,000 people between the ages of 16 and 24 in metro Phoenix who are neither working nor in school present a staggering challenge to the area.

Economic Benefits: Hiring Opportunity Youths LA

There are nearly 214,000 people between the ages of 16 and 24 in metropolitan Los Angeles who are neither working nor in school. These “Opportunity Youth” (OY) present a staggering challenge to the area in terms of lost wages and burden of social services alone. The number of OY has decreased steadily since the end of the recession. However, in 2014, OY were more White, more educated, more likely to speak English in the home and more likely be on food stamps than in previous years. This demographic shift implicates a larger portion of those who are not traditionally considered “at risk”; a group that has historically not received much support.

Opportunity Youth in Los Angeles impose an estimated lifetime burden on taxpayers of $43.2 billion and a lifetime social burden of $129.3 billion. Nationally, the 5.5 million Opportunity Youth have a potential taxpayer burden of $1.30 trillion and an aggregate social burden of $3.87 trillion. Figures like this signal a clear need for action.
