The health and wellbeing of young workers – and young men in particular – is an area often neglected in the youth research literature. This resource addresses this neglect by showcasing evidence-based findings from research conducted over a number of years with apprentices and young workers in the building and construction industries in Victoria. The diversity of topics presented attests to the range of difficulties and challenges that many young working people encounter as they transition from school to work.
