Youth unemployment has been rife in the UK over the last few years, and in Quarter Life Clueless’s opinion is one of the biggest factors as to why quarter-life crisis is such a hot topic at the moment.
However it is fair to say that it’s not just young Brits who are struggling in the job market. Data collated from Eurostat shows that Britain’s youth unemployment rates are in fact no where near as high as those in countries such as France, Spain, Portugal and Italy (no prizes go to those who guessed Greece’s youth were worse off than ours, at least that’s something ‘ey?).
What this all shows is that despite things being pretty grim at the moment in old Blighty, things are a lot worse on the other side of the channel. A discovery that will perhaps be met with cries of Sacre Bleu by our rather less fortunate French counterparts.
