The number of young Americans entering the work force continues to soar under President Trump, with the official unemployment rate for the country’s youths hitting the lowest levels seen in over 52 years.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the unemployment rate for Americans between 16 and 24 years old looking for work was just 9.2% as of July 2018; the lowest levels seen since July 1966.

“Of Americans between 16 and 24 years old actively looking for work this summer, 9.2% were unemployed in July, the Labor Department said Thursday, a drop from the 9.6% youth unemployment rate in July 2017. It was the lowest midsummer joblessness rate for youth since July 1966,” writes the WSJ.

“Similarly, the unemployment rate among older Americans who don’t have a high-school diploma fell to a record low this year. The jobless rate also fell sharply for those who completed high school but never attended college. Among racial groups, the unemployment rate for Latinos fell to 4.5% in July, the lowest rate on records back to the 1970s,” adds the site.
