Youth unemployment, now vs the 80s
I’ve written a guest post at Left Foot Forward today – looking at what is happening with youth unemployment now compared to the 1980s.
As our press release today showed, while young people’s prospects are poor now, they have been much worse. In 1984 there were over 2 million young people not in work or training several years after the recession had finished.
We think the lesson is clear – if current investment in tackling unemployment was cut we could be looking at a repeat of this social disaster.
