The proposals of the NESC
The youth unemployment is three times higher than that of adults. This is the observation made by the National Economic Social Council (NESC). According to this organization, there are more than 20,000 young people who are actively seeking employment. This despite the fact that some employees say they do not find the candidates of their choosing. One of the main reasons, says the NESC, is the problem of 'mismatch'. Hence the decision to make a thorough study on the demand and the offer of employment.
Among the preliminary proposals of NESC is the creation of a 'one-stop shop' that will be responsible for the registration of the unemployed and potential as well as training and placement employers. Other proposals are under consideration concerning the launch of a monthly magazine of employment, holding job fairs on a regular basis, the revitalization of the unit 'Career Guidance' operating under the Ministry of Education and upgrading of business.
