The unemployment of young people today may create long-lasting barriers in their future career paths, according to moneycnn.com.
Last year 18.6 percent of individuals in the 15- to 24-year-old age bracket weren't employed or in school across the 34 countries studied by the think tank group called the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, according to the article. The rate in the United States was 14.8 percent.
"It is imperative that governments use every possible means at their disposal to help job-seekers, especially young people, by removing barriers to job creation and investing in their education and skills," Angel Gurria, OECD's secretary-general, told CNN Money.
The OECD is hoping that internships and work-study programs through employers will help the situation.
