ITUC Report: The Social Crisis behind the Economic Crisis - the Millions of Young People Unemployed (May 2012)

“We are a precarious generation: unemployed, underpaid or working for free and invisibly, sentenced to a long dependence on our parents. Precariousness is our leitmotiv, we live our lives in the absence of any rights: the right to study, to housing, to a decent income, to health, to live our emotional relationships happily and freely.” –The Italian ‘Our Life is now. Life doesn’t wait.’ network.

The idea of young people being hit hardest by the economic crisis is one that predicts an ‘increasingly hazy future;’ a fact that will inevitably hurt long-term employment growth potential; a threat that the Interntional Trade Union no longer wants to ignore.
