Young and unemployed - in search of a future
Being young means living dangerously when it comes to the labour market. Getting in becomes increasingly harder, and in times of restructuring and cut-backs, the young are the first to go. Unemployment is high among young people, even if politicians in all countries are eager to get them into work. Youth unemployment is nearly 19 per cent in the enlarged EU, in Finland it’s 20.7 per cent, Sweden has 17.4 per cent and Denmark 7.2 per cent. What causes this variation between countries? What measures are efficient to ensure young people are included in the labour market? How can young people find a future in the labour market?
