One million young people will be left without a job or college place this summer after falling victim to the recession, according to a report.

The number of 16 to 24-year-olds branded as "Neet" - not in education, employment or training - is set to reach its highest point since records began, said the Local Government Association.

Researchers said many could be "stuck in a rut" for years after being left behind by the economic recovery.

Teenagers and young adults from white backgrounds are around 20 per cent more likely to be out of work or training than those from black and Asian families, it was disclosed, while women are worse hit than men.


Lazy white layabouts.

The snot goblin guaranteed the under 25’s a job or training yesterday. Although the ‘job’ includes ‘activities that benefit the community’ so we are back to chain gangs picking up dog mess in parks again. That’ll look good on the CV.

That’ll look good on the CV.A local authority permie project manager I worked for, that was younger than me, had started on one of those MSC schemes where they counted lamp posts. From there he got onto the government's Y2K training and blagged a job as a Y2K coder. Because he couldn't do it, he was moved into project work and eventually promoted to project management.

He was the one of us with an index linked, final-salary pension scheme and job security.

Scores of spangles that had done a few hours training and were taking all the bottom-end gigs. The bottom fell out of the analyst/programmer market in 2000 because of them. Meanwhile the government carried on dishing out work permits for the mid-range work and the consultancies were fighting each other for the well paying stuff. Between them they caused the contracting game to dry up by 2002/3.

I was sat in the Job Centre not getting work because these buggers had more recent training and programming experience than me.

So I went from £555 per day running a team to working for a publisher as their 'Technical Director' (i.e. doing backups and changing toner cartridges) for £15k.
