Millions of young Africans, some of them very well educated, find it almost impossible to land a secure job with a decent wage.

Alexis Akwagyiram's curator insight, January 28, 2014 12:35 PM

Youths in Africa are twice as likely to be unemployed as adults - despite the fact that the current generation of Africans entering the labour force is the most educated cohort ever. That's according to the International Labour Organisation 

Bomin Keum's curator insight, March 2, 2014 6:54 AM

This article is about many young Africans being unemployed. Unemployed Africans are increasing, from 12.4 percent in 2012 to 12.6 percent in 2013. People think that the percentage will rise to 12.8 for this year. The reasons for having so many unemployed people listed in the article were having low quality of education, not being able to have the governments to connect human capital with financial capital, laws against young people starting their own business, and having a mismatch of the skills and qualifications that most youth have with the demands of the labor market.

This made me understand more about Africa by knowing why and how young Africans are unemployed. Also, I learned that unemployment is an important issue that can lead to violence, crimes, and drug use. Also, I learned an important factor of being unemployed: not trying to solve African problems. Many Africans aren't having much desire for trying to solve problems and improve Africa. Without having the desire, they had to find any job that required them to work for, without having them provide themselves for work such as starting a business or owning a factory. This also made me understand that Africa is harder to be improved if Africans continue not making attempts to improve or solve problems in Africa.

This article made me feel surprised of how being unemployed can lead to drugs, violence, and crimes, and also how different factors can lead to unemployment. This article also made me think of my country having many young people unemployed, walking around the streets doing nothing or just sleeping on the sidewalks being bored. I learned that unemployment can be a serious issue and that we should try to prevent this from happening. Lastly, this also made me remember that education is important and necessary for our future, including not to become unemployed.
