Latest Global Trends in Youth Employment

What are the latest global trends regarding youth employability? In the last two years, youth labour market participation has been decreasing continuously in many countries around the world. This is partially due to the fact that young people are spending more time in school, which is ensuring that the future labour force will be more skilled and capable of coping with workplace changes brought on by new technologies. However, it also shows a considerable degree of labour underutilization, since one-fifth of young people globally are unemployed, uneducated, and not trained. The article below by the International Labour Organization talks about global and regional trends in youth employment.
