188,000 Jobless in UK

“Long-term youth unemployment is a national disgrace that can leave a life-time scar.” The words of one of the UK’s most influential businessman, director general of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) John Cridland, BBC said. He said parents, teachers and businesses must take responsibility for tackling the problem. Figures from the ONS show there are 188,000 18 to 24-year-olds who’ve been unemployed for more than 12 months. While that figure is down 10% in four years it is still lagging behind the fall in long-term unemployment across all other ages – down nearly 25% over the same period.
