While 10. 3% of French active population is unemployed according to a release by the National Institute of Statistics and Economic, youth unemployment continues to climb, with rate reaching 22.7% for those aged 15-24 in 2012, according to INSEE national statistics office. Situation is worse in some districts of Languedoc Roussillon region, 54% of young people being unemployed.
In Europe employers are especially reluctant to hire young people because restrictive labour laws make it hard for companies to lay off employees. This situation is worse in France, where young people are typically required to do a series of often unpaid internships before landing a full-time job and most times can only manage to get short-term contracts for years on end.
