The Top Employer of People Age 18-29 Is …

The United States military. That is of course if you roll them all up together. Separately the US Army comes in at #20, Air Force at #31, and Navy at #50. The one thing that got my attention is the list of companies hiring young folks. All retail or fast food. Gone, apparently, are the entry level blue collar jobs. There were a couple of tech companies like Apple, although those jobs were most likely in their retail stores, Google and Tech for America, whoever the heck they are.

So kiddies, it appears along with that college degree critical skills you will need are good diction, so your voice is not distorted by the speaker at the drive through window, a good memory of what the special of the day is and being able to locate a product on a shelf in the store and some really comfortable shoes because you are going to be standing a lot.

    Not really too surprised with that. In Canada, it’s either oil patch(or resource unless you’re lucky to be in a tech area) related or military. Out of my 8 cousins, 2 work in the federal government as prison guards at max security prisons busting their humps along with my sister. 4 work in the oil patches of alberta, either in the fields, or field related jobs(driving trucks, doing sour testing, or other extraction work). And two are in the military, both of whom are still in afghanistan with the 3rd(ppcli) one being a field monkey, the other as a spotter.
