Youth Unemployment Heads to One Million.

with 5 comments

From the Observer (Here), 

“The government’s record on youth unemployment will come under intense scrutiny this week amid fears that the number of jobless 16 to 24-year-olds will rise through the one-million barrier.

Economists believe the failure of large numbers of this year’s school leavers and graduates to find work this summer will lead to a sharp jump in those under 25 without work when the data for August is released on Wednesday.”


The Labour, and Conservative response is that there has to be an expansion of unpaid workplacements – ‘Internships’.


Perhaps they should take a Butcher’s at this site: Carrot Workers (here).

  2. unpaid workplacements – ‘Internships’
    “New Labour” should change it’s name to “Slave Labour” to represent all it’s present unemployed unpaid work ideals and why not take things further by opening a junior branch for kids called “Child Labour” who could be expected to get stuffed up chimneys and down coal mines for no wages.

  3. youth unemployment is i would suspect continue to rise,this is a real problem and the government will use evermore means to try and tackle it.by more foul means then fair.

    the uk economy where many would have been employed those jobs are long gone,the uk relies on the banking/markets more then say germany and manufacturing and other european countries.

    unemployment/opportunities has taken root in this country,particularly over the past few decades,the splits in society are there for everyone to see run down and those that can afford live.
    sometimes just by crossing a road this can be seen.
