CNN Money Puzzles Over Youth Unemployment, Ignores Obamacare


Only CNN could run a column on “Why America’s youth aren’t finding jobs” and neglect to mention Obamacare. Over the course of Nin-Hai Tseng’s 555 word story, CNN Money cites a variety of reasons why young Americans’ unemployment rate is ridiculously high, particularly noting unemployment in jobs that typically requiring more experience, forcing more experienced unemployed people into more menial jobs and squeezing out the young. Yet nowhere does CNN Money attempt to explain this phenomenon. One rationale: the vast majority of jobs created by President Obama’s failed recovery are part time jobs, since nobody wants to pay Obamacare cash.
