United Kingdom -Youth perspectives are negative -May 14, 2013

A TUC study finds 58% of 18-24-year-olds found work in 2013, against almost 65% in 2009, leaving a shortfall of 395,000 jobs. As published by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development the battle for work is exemplified by data showing that as many as 45 people are applying for every low-skilled job. Many employers overwhelmed with applications told the CIPD they would not even consider school leavers or the long term unemployed. The number of people looking for work rose by 70,000 between December 2012 and February 2013, according to the latest count, taking the unemployment tally to 2.56 million people, 7.9% of the labour force.
