Youth on the edge
Youth unemployment is a big problem in the Nordic region. Especially exposed are those who end up ‘on the edge’ of the labour market. They have neither jobs nor are they in any kind of education. Many youths move to a different Nordic country to work. But so far this has not helped those who are unemployed. Only 1.4 percent of Swedish youths who move to Denmark and Norway are on some kind of unemployment benefit. This summer the Nordic exchange programme Nordjobb launches ‘Jobbresan’ (the Job Journey).
