Youth job scheme bid

A THINK tank has recommended a Youth Guarantee scheme to help deal with unemployment.

TASC says that figures show young people face challenges in finding jobs. "Not only do they face the 'experience trap', whereby they cannot get a job without experience, and cannot gain experience without a job -- but if they do get a job they are more likely to lose it during a downturn," said head of policy Sinead Pentony.
