Millennials Targeted for Jobs in Health Care


“For millennials on Long Island, a lot of the new jobs are in health care,” Dr. Gregory DeFreitas, professor of economics, said in a recent Newsday article. The report discusses how local health care employers are actively recruiting younger workers. The industry is bracing itself for Long Island’s aging population – which includes its healthcare workers who will need medical attention themselves. The article says currently one fifth of the region’s millennials are working in the health care industry.

Dr. DeFreitas is founding director of the Labor Studies degree program and director of the Center for the Study of Labor and Democracy.
