Youth Unemployment, Income Inequality Keep Rising

Josh Butler, Inter Press Service

The world’s youth unemployment rate may be “six or seven times” what the International Labor Organisation’s (ILO) latest figures state, according to a global youth advocacy group.

The ILO recently released its 2015 World Employment and Social Outlook (WESO) report, and presented the findings to the United Nations Friday.

One of the report’s major findings is the worldwide unemployment rate among 15 to 24-year-olds of 13 percent, or 74 million youths, is set to rise.
