Reports in the US say around 9%....in reality it's closer to 16% because they don't count the people that have fallen off unemployment benefits and still can't find a job.

They are the official figures but I have a suspicion that they are really much higher. My Nephew is 20, never had a job (apart from working in a pizza shop at night) but he's been on course after course with no jobs at the end of them. They just keep saying to him try this course.

A few of his mates are in the same situation too.

 

I don't think things have changed too much either. When I was made redundant when I lived there in the 80's I couldn't stand being at home idle until something showed up so I went and found a local course run by the government. So even then they had things in place which skewed the real figures.

 

The UK has been there before by the way. Remember the UB40 song 1 in 10?
