Youth joblessness back at crisis peak

Youth joblessness is almost back at its peak following the outbreak of the global economic crisis and is unlikely to ease until at least 2016, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) warned today.
The ILO said nearly 75 million youths or 12.7 per cent of people aged 15 to 24 will be out of work this year, up from 12.6 per cent in 2011.
The jobless total is creeping towards the 75.4 million unemployed in 2009 when the financial crisis caused the number to soar.
The picture is more gloomy if the millions who have put off or given up looking for a job are included: this would put the 2011 figure at 13.6 per cent. Youths opting to prolong their education will meanwhile enter the labour market in the coming years, putting continued pressure on the jobless rate. "By 2016, the youth unemployment rate is projected to remain at the same high level," said the ILO.
In its Global Employment Trends for Youth report, the body suggests offering tax and other incentives to businesses hiring young people and more entrepreneurship programmes to help youths kick-start a career.
"The youth unemployment crisis can be beaten but only if job creation for young people becomes a key priority in policy-making and private sector investment picks up significantly," said executive director of the ILO's employment sector, Jose Manuel Salazar-Xirinachs.
More than a quarter (27.9 per cent) of youths were unemployed in North Africa last year following the Arab spring uprisings, an increase of five percentage points on 2010.
The Middle East figure stood at 26.5 per cent in the report's regional breakdown.
In central and south-eastern Europe the unemployment rate dropped slightly to 17.6 per cent in 2011 and Latin America and the Caribbean also saw a small decrease to 14.3 per cent.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, the rate stood at 11.5 per cent compared to 13.5 per cent in south-east Asia and the Pacific. "Even in East Asia, perhaps the most economically dynamic region, the unemployment rate was 2.8 times higher for young people than for adults," said the report.
The statistics showed the jobs crisis tended to have a stronger impact on women in most regions.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is

required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very

web savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice

would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

Could you please lengthen them a little from

subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
of text for only having 1 or 2

pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic

but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I'm getting sick and tired of

Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
and I'm looking at options for another platform. I

would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform

what you are using on your blog?
