Good Luck.
new report says number of young people without job is still very high in many countries. There are currently 73 million people around world aged 15-24 who want to work but cannot find job. International Labour Organization (ILO) said that although youth unemployment is coming down in rich countries, it is rising in most of Asia, Middle East, North Africa and Brazil. youth unemployment rate in China increased from 9.3 per cent in 2010 to 10.6 per cent last year. Economists say it will be 11.1 per cent in 2016. In Brazil, figure for youth unemployment was 14 per cent at beginning of this year, but is now almost 16 per cent. ILO warns that youth employment worldwide is set to rise.

ILO said it is difficult for many young people who are looking for work. It said: "It's still not easy to be young and starting out in today's labour market." It is particularly bad for many young women. highest rate of youth unemployment around world is for women in Middle East and North Africa. This figure is around 45 per cent. There are many reasons for gloomy figures for youth unemployment. One major factor is global financial collapse of 2008. Many countries have still not recovered from that. ILO says youth unemployment is not just important for country's economy. It also affects health, social unrest and levels of people's happiness.
