Youth Unemployment Could Treble

Recommended Posts

Youth unemployment could treble

THE Government has been urged to do more to tackle long-term youth unemployment after a new report warned it will almost treble by 2011.

Cities such as Hull, Sunderland, Barnsley, Doncaster and Swindon have been hardest hit by rising levels of young people out of work for longer than a year, a study by research institute Centre for Cities found.

The group said the Government's £1 billion fund aimed at creating 150,000 new jobs between 2009-11 for long-term unemployed young people was a "sticking plaster" because of the scale of the problem.

advertisementThe fund will help less than half the expected 350,000 people aged 16 to 24 expected to be long term unemployed by the end of 2011, said today's report.

Cities worst hit by youth unemployment have seen increases of up to 7% in the numbers claiming jobseeker's allowance since the recession started, said the group.

Swindon and Hastings have suffered big increases as well as former industrial areas in northern England, the study of English cities found.

Dermot Finch, director of the Centre for Cities, said: "The Government is right to introduce the Future Jobs Fund at this time, but it will not be big enough to help every long-term unemployed young person.

"So it will need to be targeted carefully on those young people in cities that have seen a rise in unemployment due to the recession."

The group estimated 1.18 million young people will be unemployed by 2011, with almost a third out of work for longer than a year. Under 25s make up one in five of Britain's working population but two in five of the unemployed, according to the research.

When the class of 2009 leaves formal education, about 300,000 graduates and 400,000 school leavers will join the queue of people looking for work.

2009 graduates leave school, find no employment, go on the dole, as do the next years, and then next...

Working generation gets hammered by taxes, property crash, and the price of state failure protectionist policy.

Boomer generation retires, taking down a lot of the top heavy corrupted financial institutions which have ripped the heart and soul of a productive, manufacturing Britain.

Future = fail.

I feel sorry for these young men and women. They will know despair and poverty unlike the previous few generations.

I don't mind saying that I am one of those unemployed. I left uni after one year because my course was crap. Been looking for a job for almost a year now. Most of my mates think they will easily get a job when they finish uni. Little do they know it's EXPERIENCE employers are looking for NOT qualifications. I'm looking into doing a computer course which will hopefully help me to get some sort of job in I.T. Good luck to all those looking for a job at the moment.

This is f*cking hideous; what kind of a life is it to be brought up to be a tame animal getting a payslip, given pointless "education" only to find there's nothing out there?

And all the socialists can offer is dole and minimum wage.

The kids now need to be told from an early age that there's nothing out there for them that they don't make with their own hands (figuratively, not literally!) and exposed to people who make stuff happen as much as possible. At least then we're bringing up kids who will know how to forage for themselves.

Maybe you could have the capitalist option then.

No dole, no minimum wage and a job counting turkeys for some Bernie Mathews.

No, but I think you should up your saltpeter intake to offset the heavy dose of sexual metaphor in your post. Either that or get a lads mag and 'blow' off some steam.

I don't think that's fair to be honest.

You're right.

I shouldn't be exposing his deepest fanatasies on here.

It's just not right.

Cashinmattress could post some inspiring, happy stuff sometimes I do admit. Bit like the BBC really, when the only good news is invariably the birth of a panda.

Anyone know why that is?

Go visit the off-topic and have a look at the stuff I post. Surely some of that will bring a smile or make you scratch your head....

There is no upside to the economy or housing market, and I do no want to post fluff or overly optimistic opinion pieces....

There is always the MSE forums if you want a belly rub.

The best advice is to use a condom.

The best option is they get brought up to despise socialist dependency and learn to work out how to create their own opportunities. If that's a "capitalist" solution, then that's the one for me.

Nice to see you don't feel the need to add to the "solutions" of socialism.

Wasn't. I meant to quote judas and hit your button by mistake.

Take no offence! None was intended.

So...

You leave school with hyper-inflated (and worthless) qualifications. No job, the scrap heap for you.

So you go to Uni for 3/4 years, which for most is financing their own dole...before realising with a shock and a bump, there are no jobs even after that.

I have to agree with Bog Brush and Minos on this one, on their differing but equally effective solutions.

What will happen is what always happens when young men are disenfranchised.

They revolt, they don’t conform and smash anything in their way.

Have a look over at Belfast to see their views on multiculturalism for instance, vigilante justice starts.

Please don't totally discourage the young from education especially during an economic bust. I did my degree between 92 and 95 I think it was and did quite well afterwards. Much hard work mind you. Not easy.

Do encourage them to do relevant and useful/vocational stuff though.

Thanks

Got to feel for these graduates coming out now for uni..some will have done any degree they could get on as having a degree, any degree, put you in a good position to find decent employment. This will probably change now as employers will surely pick the best with the most relevant qualifications..As an example I work in logistics and have seen history graduates come into our field and fail instantly..Add on top of that the debt that has to be repaid..not going to be easy

Soul destroying.

In these times, if your thirties/forties, still mobile, have a lot of industry experience etc, I think you'll still work. Harder and for less, but still work.

People even continue to employ this clown speaking to you now.

Youth unemployment to triple?

Highly unlikely it will go from the current 2m to 6m that I can guarantee.

However if you take the governments say 500k unemployed “official†figure then yes it may triple to an “official†1.5m.

Youth unemployment is already bad.

How many people aged 16-22 do you know that are unemployed. I know lots sadly
