A terrible time to be young and unemployed

16 Feb 2011, by in Labour market, Society & Welfare

I have a post at Left Foot Forward, looking at this month’s employment figures. Unemployment is up and employment down, long-term unemployment is up and so is involuntary temporary and part-time work. Youth unemployment is especially high – and news is emerging of gaps in the government’s Work Programme.

Not a good news day.
