job Youth Unemployment Hits Record High

Global youth unemployment has hit a record high following the financial crisis and is likely to get worse later this year, the International Labor Organization (ILO) said Thursday.

The report from the ILO says 81 million out of 630 million 15-24 year olds where unemployed at the end of 2009, some 7.8 million more than at the end of 2007.

Do you think that high unemployment of youths in the United States could be traced back to the forced increase in the minimum wage? 

Do you agree with the sign in the photo…is having a job a “right”?

Let me know what you think.
