EU response to youth jobs crisis is not the solution

15 January 2013

The European Commission has found the ‘cure’ for high youth unemployment: businesses simply need to employ more young people. Otherwise, all young people who do not find a job within four months of leaving school should have the legal right to employment, initial training or an internship.

The European Commission has found the ‘cure’ for high youth unemployment: businesses simply need to employ more young people. Otherwise, all young people who do not find a job within four months of leaving school should have the legal right to employment, initial training or an internship.

Milan Cabrnoch, European Conservatives and Reformists group member of Committee on Employment and Social Affairs, understands the serious nature of youth unemployment, particularly in southern Europe where youth unemployment has reached alarming numbers. However, he believes the Commission’s proposal does notrepresent a solution to the system. “This proposal is a typical response of the European Union. The idea that young people should have a job is of course correct but the proposed solution is utopian. The European Union has to face serious problems with unemployment, but not by burdening businesses,” says Cabrnoch.

Instead, he argues that the European Union must set conditions that do not constrain small and medium enterprises, which produce nearly 70% of jobs in the Europeanlabour market.

Milan Cabrnoch said:

“Unfortunately, the increasing regulation is acting as an obstacle for businesses. It complicates the creation of new jobs. The labor market needs to increase its flexibility and new regulatory measures should not interfere.”
