Glenis Willmott MEP campaigns for a European Youth Guarantee

Article by Glenis Willmott, Labour Member of the European Parliament for the East Midlands since 2006 and Labour’s Leader in Europe.

There has always been an assumption that the younger generation is more pro-European than those of us who are rather longer in the tooth. 

There’s probably some truth in that generalisation. Opportunities that many younger people have had in Europe, for travel, and even for study or work, have been greater than for previous generations. Not surprisingly this has encouraged a more open-minded approach towards people from other countries, a more tolerant attitude towards different cultures, and a more positive view of the European Union.

Jugendarbeitslosigkeit in der Eurozone: ein echtes Desaster

Nicolas Schmit - Rudolf Hundstorfer - European Youth Guarantee campaign

Original article

Derzeit sind mehr als 5,5 Mio. junge Menschen in Europa ohne Arbeit. Für den Luxemburger Beschäftigungsminister und Vorsitzenden der sozialistischen Sozial- und Arbeitsminister Nicolas Schmit kommt dieser Befund einer echten Katastrophe gleich. Schmit zufolge besteht das richtige Desaster der Eurozonenkrise darin, dass in einigen Ländern mehr als die Hälfte aller jungen Menschen erwerbslos sind. Sie hätten etwas Besseres verdient, so Beschäftigungsminister  Schmit, der darin auch eine Erklärung dafür sieht, dass Jungwähler sich bei Wahlen vermehrt extremistischen Parteien zuwenden. Jeder Tag, der sich durch Untätigkeit angesichts der Jugendarbeitslosigkeit auszeichne, sei ein Tag, der das Vertrauen in die Demokratie weiter untergrabe, gibt der Luxemburger Beschäftigungsminister am Donnerstag vor Journalisten in Luxemburg zu bedenken.
