Youth @ work - France
Durée :2'16'' / Date: Jan 2012
Young people have been hardest hit by the economic crisis, since they often lack the experience and skills to be competitive. Today, one in five young Europeans cannot find a job. However the Youth@Work action aims at showing that, thanks to their fresh take on the world, young people often have innovative ideas and energy. According to a European study, the youth unemployment rate in France reached 24.4 % in 2010. Damian Abgrall, 26, and his associate Timothée Martin, 22, choose the path of entrepreneurship by setting up their own computer development company. Created a year ago, thanks to material, financial and moral support, their SME Wid’op now employs four workers aged between 21 and 23.
