Making a life with less: youth underemployment over the life course
Grant number: DE220100027 | Funding period: 2022 - 2024
This project aims to investigate the experiences and impacts of underemployment on young people. Using high-quality longitudinal data and qualitative interviews, this project expects to generate new, foundational knowledge about the employment pathways young people take following underemployment and the strategies they use to mitigate its effects. In doing so, this project aims to reveal the impacts underemployment has on young people's lives within and outside work, including their relationships, family formation and well-being. This much-needed research aims to provide significant benefits for policymakers and service providers that improve the lives of young people.
