Youth unemployment has become one of the most crucial economic and social issues in Europe since the outburst of the ongoing financial and economic crisis. Several European countries are experiencing extremely high levels of youth unemployment. For instance, in 2011 countries like Spain, Greece, and Italy recorded extremely high levels of unemployment among young people. The unemployment rate of people less than 25 years of age stood at 46.4, 44.4, and 29.1 percent respectively.
