Youth Unemployment in France


In France, 17% of youths between the ages of 15 and 29 are not in education, employment or training. Many of them are unemployed or inactive, and are poorly qualified to integrate into the job market. This chapter discusses the main obstacles this group faces, as well as possible remedies. Programmes, vocational training, and support in the search for jobs could be wise long-term investments, but including young people in the minimum income scheme and reducing the cost of work are as important.
