Abstract

Working youth over the age of 17 are the forgotten workers of 21st century America. To draw attention to this group of workers, we report a study of the work experiences of young (ages 18-25) com munity college students in Northern California—students who are predominantly working class, immigrant and people of color, and who have long histories of cycling back and forth between work and school. We describe the workplace demands and needs of these working students. And, we call on educators, unionists, policy makers, community, and youth organizers to address and improve the conditions of all working youth.
