Abstract

Recent evidence suggests that young people are at an increased risk for developing problem gambling compared to adults. However, relatively little is known about the gambling behaviour and gambling-related problems of young workers. This survey of Australian apprentices revealed high rates of gambling and gambling-related problems, particularly in relation to gambling on games of skill, racing and casino table games, and low rates of help-seeking for gambling-related problems. The findings imply that there is a need for effective health promotion and intervention targeted at this group of young workers.
