The fact sheet, GET THE FACTS About Youth Unemployment in Rhode Island [http://jobs.younginvincibles.org/get-the-facts-about-youth-unemployment-in-rhode-island/] gives an in-depth look into how economic opportunity for young adults in the state has fallen.
-Only 46 percent of young people who have a job are working full-time, down from 56 percent in 2005
-The number of young people who have a job at all has decreased from 65 percent in 2005 to just 56 percent today.
