EU employment reaches new high / European youth misses out on jobs boom

I found articles about how the employment in Europe has risen and that still more and more new jobs have been created- mostly in service sector ( while agriculture has experienced a steady decrease). The most markedly fall of unemployment have been recorded in Poland, but there was a drop also in new member states as well as in Germany and France. There is a prognosis for Germany to even reach the Lisbon employment target of 70% of a employment rate in 2010. On the other hand, in spite of the big amount of new jobs the unemployment among 15-24 year-olds has decreased. The reasons stated in the article are insufficient qualifications and labour market segmentation favouring insiders at the expense of newcomers. Read  more here and here🙂
