Young Workers Suffering in Tough Economy

Education costs are increasing at Universities around the country. At the same time, the economy is making it hard for many students to keep up with the rising costs. A new study by the AFL-CIO shows young workers are making less money today than they did ten years ago. The study says in 1999, more workers were able to manage day to day costs, and even save money.
