The number of federal employees under age 30 drops from 9.6 percent of the workforce to 6.6 percent over the last five years. And the number of employees under age 25 is down from 2 percent of the federal workforce to 0.9 percent in the same time. That's according to the 2014 Best Places to Work analysis from the Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte. Tim McManus is vice president for education and outreach at the Partnership.
