Young People on the Periphery – Nordic policies against unemployment and exclusion Antra Carlsen - Nordic countries

Youth unemployment rates are considerably higher than those for general unemployment in the Nordic countries. A growing number of young people in the Nordic region are at great risk of long-term exclusion from working life and society. Several Nordic mapping studies and analyses have been carried out during the period 20102012 and the conclusion is that despite socio-economical and cultural differences the Nordic countries would benefit from a closer cooperation and exchange of experiences when it comes to the future work of preventing unemployment among young people Ler artigo | Read article

http://tinyurl.com/d4ul8ut

The ILO called the group of young workers in this hopeless situation as "scarred generation", and they are characterized by increasing inactivity, unemployment and uncertain workplaces. Young people remain unemployed for longer and longer periods. Even if they are able to enter the labor market, often they are employed only on a fix-term contract or they can only undertake seasonal work.

During this Seminar, Mr. László Andor, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion also explained that all the various age groups are victims of this long-lasting crisis, but the young people are especially affected. At the same time there are significant differences among the various EU Member States.

The forced mobility of unemployed Portuguese young people Carlos Ribeiro

The Brasserie Room in Sutton is ready to welcome its first customers. The tables have been set. The red sofas with their throw pillows signal good taste and organization. The menus are waiting to guide the first customers in giving their orders. On the esplanade outside, a few plants and discrete lighting invite customers to enter. Jessica arrived two hours ago. This top-quality welcome setting is the result of her work. Two months ago she was living in Lisbon, unemployed and in despair.

She feels that she has succeeded in the chances she has taken because she is very obviously open to learning and is dissatisfied with her knowledge in view of the challenges that she encountered and is encountering in giving shape to her plans for her life.

“This isn’t what I want to do for the rest of my life, but I’m happy to be working and to be able to count on a pay check at the end of the month,” the 18-year-old Portuguese woman with African forebears confesses. In secondary school she dreamed of becoming a fashion designer. Now she’s waiting tables in London.
