EuroCadres Final Report on Young Professional and Managerial staff facing changes in the work place.
‘Even in countries where social cohesion is strong and general unemployment rates are low, unemployment levels of young people tend to be much higher than the average. This is unfortunate, not only for those young people out of work, but also for the economic prospects of the countries in question as exiting the crisis and future growth will be dependent on developing the knowledge economy.’
