Europe's Most Tragic Graph: Greek Youth Unemployment Hits 55%

Europe's Most Tragic Graph: Greek Youth Unemployment Hits 55% | Shoulda, Coulda Explored This | Scoop.it

Insights on an issue that needs exploring based on U.S. information.

 

Youth unemployment in Spain and Greece is now 55% and 53%, incredibly...   Young workers in Greece and Spain are facing an absolutely egregious work drought, where half of high-school and college-graduates ready to find a job aren't finding one. And 55% isn't the ceiling. Both economies are shrinking and unemployment is a lagging indicator -- as Americans have learned, the rate can keep going up after an economy technically starts growing. This economic tragedy can easily become a social disaster as young promising people either leave their country to work somewhere else or else turn to illegal or violent activities to protest policies wrecking their economies or lash out against a country that's leaving them behind.
