Unemployment among young people is no longer growing, but less and less of them are quick to enter the labour market. Such are the indications of the latest report of the International Labour Organization.
In the 23 years between 1991 and 2014, the labour market participation rate among young people has dropped from 59 percent to 47.3 percent, which means that there are ca. 30 mln more young people aged 25 years and below who did not enter the job market. There are numerous reasons for that. – Some of them prolong their education, some have entered the grey market, while other are the so-called NEETs – they do not work, do not study or train – explains Łukasz Kozłowski of Employers of Poland.
