The job crisis,
What about young people?

youth unemployment is only the tip of the iceberg
Working poor
4 out of 10 young workers are young working poor
Low paid workers
For 10 workers in low-wage -> more than 5 are young people
Temporary jobs
In Europe, 4 out of 10 young workers are working temporary jobs
For 6 young people, 1 is "neither in education nor in employment or training"
OECD countries
In advanced economies
1/3 or more of young job seekers are unemployed
for at least 6 months.
Young people with higher levels of education are increasingly taking up jobs for which they are overqualified.
In developing countries
9 out of 10 of our world’s youth live in developing countries
The concept of unemployment becomes "meaningless":
few have regular employment + no unemployment benefits:
many youth "get by" through part-time jobs,
underemployment, self-employment
A recent youth employment
adopted by 186 countries,
calls for urgent action to tackle
the unprecedented
youth employment crisis
Employment and economic policies for youth employment
Employability – Education,
training and skills,
and the school-to-work
Labour market policies
Labour rights for young people
Youth entrepreneurship and self-employment
Decent Work
The way forward
Growth and jobs strategies that establish clear youth employment priorities, objectives and measurable indicators
National budgets that allocate appropriate resources for the implementation of the strategies
Balanced approach with supply-side measures and interventions to increase labour demand and the quality of jobs for young workers.
Targeted labour market measures to support national youth employment priorities, especially to assist disadvantaged youth
Young people and social partners play a
critical role
in national and local labour policies and programmes:
Quality education, training and work experience, as well as innovative interventions to support young people through entrepreneurship and self-employment
Systematically monitored and evaluated to maximize their advantages
Strengthening and broadening partnerships with all actors including young people can help change the situation
3. Fair income and hours of work
4. Social protection and security
A need for action
We have never seen before a crisis like this one facing young people today and it is a crisis that requires everyone to act together!

Global Youth Employment forum 2012
"Nothing about us, without us"
And you, what is your story?
Participants' outcomes:

- Governments, workers and employers should recognize that there is no “one-size-fits all” solution;

-Networking, sharing good practices and fostering multipartite actions are essential
Young people organizations
are resourceful and
direct agents of change!
They innovate,
develop networking actions, local approaches,
good practices,
social media…and more!
8 out of 10 young workers are in informal employment.
Youth unemployment rate in 2012: 12.6%
Highest level in 20 years
The job crisis disproportionately affects youth
