Greeceland more than half of the youth are unemployed

In March 2012, Spain and Greece passed of 50% youth unemployement.  That means there were more Spanish and Greek workers under 25 without a job than with one.

Six months later, it’s only gotten worse.

Youth unemployment in Spain and Greece is now 55% and 53%, incredibly. If you’re in school or not actively looking for a job, you’re not counted in the unemployment rate. This economic tragedy can easily become a social disaster as young promising people either leave their country to work somewhere else or else turn to illegal or violent activities to protest policies wrecking their economies or lash out against a country that’s leaving them behind.

Europe is a great idea but now as the economic crisis is very high, Europe doesn’t help. Euro has no leader no economic purpose. The only goal is to keep slow inflation. Unemploement is not the goal. They don’t care. Europe is definitively not a good idea.
