Being Young Being Heard: young people and employment

This the fourth in our series of briefing sheets based on the report Being Young Being Heard, and focuses on specific issues that young people are facing in regards to employment - particularly in the current economic climate.

CAS' report, Being Young Being Heard, outlines the impact of the recession on young people in Scotland in their own words. The report shows that the effect of the recession has been that too many young people have become trapped in unemployment; in low paying unsatisfying jobs; in expensive private lets; on benefits that keep them afloat but don’t give them a leg up; and ultimately in a place where their potential is going to waste.
