Young people battle unemployment in France

Source: Al Jazeera

With presidential elections in France less than three months away, unemployment is emerging as one of the key issues.

The overall unemployment rate is nearly 10 per cent, the young are particularly hard hit with 1 in 4 people being out of work.

A small job scheme is allowing youth get back into the work place and it is operated by donors and volunteers.

Al Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland visited a project in the Paris suburbs aimed at helping people get back into the workplace.
