Study: Finding work a struggle for NYC foster kids

NEW YORK - A new study shows that only about half of young adults who leave New York City's foster care are able to find employment.

The report by the Center for an Urban Future also found that young people still in the system struggle more than their peers to find jobs.

According to the report, there were about 16,000 children in the city's foster care system as of 2010.
