Youth and the labour market

Hide / Show Abstract

Participation in employment, education or training is important for youth to become established in the labour market and achieve self-sufficiency. Record high unemployment rates in a number of countries have hit youth especially hard. This has resulted in many youth unable to find work and in other youth withdrawing from the labour market entirely, becoming “inactive”.
