Young workers are being disproportionately hit by the UK Government's unnecessary austerity policies. Young people's deteriorating prospects are due to a toxic combination of increased university tuition fees, unemployment, poorer job opportunities, lower pay and rapid house price inflation.
We're demanding that employers...
"Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society's margins, all of us will be impoverished.
Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies."
Why we need change
Millennials: The first digital natives; social, well-connected and ambitious for our global future.
But with less money to spend and encumbered with debt, millennials can't achieve their potential.
Young people deserve better.
We are asking employers to sign up to 5 key principles to make sure that the future workforce get the start to their career that they need.
Whether you are Generation X or Generation Y, an employer or an employee, there's something you can do to help young workers get a fairer deal.
