Junk Generation (Y)

 

"Junk generation" - as they are often referred to today are graduates of schools.

 

Why? Young, talented, educated and... unemployed. Although their CV bears a few faculties and fluidity in several foreign languages, they often end up working in restaurants, caring for children or working as cashiers at the supermarket. Those who do find a job in their chosen industry, get stuck with a junk agreement (junk contract).

 

Nearly 80 per cent of the young people who worked on civil contracts five years ago, usually for a specified period of three months, are still working the same job today or have no work at all.

 

Working on "junk contract" is a life lock - it is difficult to get a loan or to start even a family.
