OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
24/7 Wall St. reviewed 29 nations to determine the 10 countries with the highest unemployment rate among 16-25 year olds.
Spain and Greece are tied with 52.1% youth unemployment.
Though not at the top of the list, United States’ youth unemployment rate is too high at 16.1%, which is nearly double the national average!
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
o High unemployment rates for young people are catastrophic for both the global and the American economy.
OUR TIME OPINION
Youth unemployment is a global problem, not just an American one. The entire world needs to invest in its youth. Help us invest in American youth by signing our petition to create one million new service jobs!
