The Trade Unions Congress today publishes a report on youth unemployment analysing official unemployment data over the last decade. It finds that:
- Young black men have experienced the sharpest rise in unemployment since the coalition came to power, with more than one in four of all black 16-24 year-olds (26 percent) currently out of work.
- The report also finds that white and Asian youngsters are now twice as likely to be out of work as those from the same ethnic group over the age of 24.
- Young Asian women are experiencing the sharpest rise in unemployment, doubling in the last decade.
