At the end of June, the labour market was entered by over half a million of graduates of whom at least 110 thousand will not find a job. According to the Employers of Poland, it is high time to mobilize the Labour Fund in the account of which is still frozen over PLN 5 billion.
According to the research of the Institute of Labour and Social Policy, it appears that the number of unemployed graduates in 2011-2015 can even exceed 3 million. During this period the labour market will be entered by the current 2 million secondary and higher education students.
The problem of youth unemployment arises mainly due to the demographic situation and occurs in almost all the EU countries. Currently in Europe, more than 5.5 million people under 24 years of age are out of work – most of them are in Spain (51.5%) and Greece (52.1 %). In the EU, the governments give all available funds towards the vocational activation of the unemployed. In Poland, surprisingly, the public funds statutorily allocated for this purpose are blocked and are used to reduce the state budget deficit.
