No-country for young people

We already know that the crisis has unquestionably hit the labor market, this, together with the difficulty for young people to enter it, has caused Spain to have today one of the largest labor markets in all of Europe, with only one 5% of workers under 25 years of age, according to the latest article published by Fedea based on data from the Active Population Survey (EPA) for the last quarter.

As for those over 45, 41% of workers meet this premise while before the crisis, in 2007, only 32% belonged to this group.

The reasons that explain the aging of the labor market are varied, but one of the most explanatory turns out to be the destruction of temporary employment, generally occupied by young people, on the other hand, we cannot forget the demographic aging of society, which also helps to partly explain this variation.
