GRITtv: The F Word: Cuts Leave Young People No Future to Win

Paul Mason of the BBC called them “the graduates with no future.” They’ve been at the center of protest movements around the world, from Tunisia to Wisconsin.

GRITtv contributor Gary Younge reported on Spain’s unemployment for the Guardian recently —64 percent of youth under 19 are out of work, and the total youth unemployment rate is 43 percent—higher than Egypt and Tunisia, both. Don Tapscott noted in the same paper that in the UK, 40 percent of the unemployed are aged 16 to 24, and here in the US, 21 percent of young people are unemployed. Distributed by Tubemogul.
