SALT LAKE CITY — The turbulent economy continues to pound Millennials.
Nearly one in three U.S. workers ages 18 to 29 were underemployed in April, a rise from 30.1 percent in March, according to a recent Gallup poll.
Underemployment, a measurement that accounts for both those who are unemployed and workers forced to take a part-time job to make ends meet, has held around 30 percent for most of the past year.
The number has shown no real improvement, according to Gallup.
Unemployment rose to 13.6 percent among young adults, a rise from 12.5 percent the previous month.
The national unemployment rate is currently 8.1 percent.
Young adults are the most likely of any age group to be unemployed, according to the survey.
Only 7 percent of the 30-to-49 age group were unemployed, which is 6.6 percent better than the rate for young adults.
The 50-to-64 age group had a 6.2 percent unemployment rate in April.
