San Francisco has a problem with youth unemployment. Although it has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, the rate for individuals between the ages of 16-24 who are not in school is 12.4%. Much of the problem is due to the fact that a college education tuition has has gotten too high and out the reach of many.
