The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report in September puts the developed world average for youths who are neither in employment nor in education at 15%. Spain fares poorly in the report: 31% of people without a high school diploma are out of work, compared with an average of 15%, while 20% of those who did graduate from high school are also unemployed, compared with an OECD average of 16%. At the same time 23% of university graduates are jobless, compared with a developed world average of 13%. The question is how to motivate youngsters to seek work or study in such a situation.
