27% of Brazil’s Youth Do Nothing. They Neither Work Nor Study.

    About a quarter of Brazilians in the 15 to 24 age group neither work nor study, reported this Monday, February 20, the daily newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, quoting a paper by an independent think-tank.

    Researchers from the Brazilian Institute for Social and Economic Analysis, IBASE, interviewed 8,000 young people from the country’s eight largest cities and found that 27.1% of them did not have jobs and were not in school.

    IBASE also found out that barely 25.9% of Brazilians in the 15 to 24 age group was employed and 33.6% were still students. The other 13.4% study and work at the same time, according to Ibase.

    Brazilian government statistics confirm that nearly one-quarter of Brazil’s young people, 23%, don’t go to school or work, and 67% have no interest in finding a job.

    "It might appear that they are all hanging out on street corners with nothing to do, but many of them are looking for work or participating in social projects. They are not in that situation because they want to be. Some had to leave school, others are seeking work or a place at the university," said Eliana Ribeiro, one of the Ibase paper coordinators.

    "They argue that without experience you can’t get into the labor market and without having had a job, they can’t acquire experience," said Patricia Lanes, an Ibase researcher.

    "Often, due to the difficulty of finding a job, they get discouraged and stop looking until the situation improves," added Cimar Azeredo Pereira, who supervises the Brazilian government efforts to track unemployment.

      Well, welll !!!
      That means they were not provided the opportunity to learn a job or they cant afford
      to continue their studies !
      And if 67 % have no interest in finding a job is because they tried for a lonmg time and have given up because there is no jon available.
      Now do your own maths :
      – if 67 % of youths between 15/24 have no interet in finding a job, that within those looking for a job but dont find one, simple maths will reveal that your official overall unemployment rate of 8.2 % CANNOT BE CORRECT !
      BECAUSE IT IS NOT ONLY THE 15/24 YOUTHS THAT CANNOT OR DONT WANT TO FIND A JOB !!!!!!!

      Simple demonstration that your official statistics are trunked, manipulated, and even more so under Lula mandate and his governmental Ministers.

      Another simple demonstration is how can a country reduce their unemploymenent rate from 9.6 % to 8.2 % IN ONE SINGLE MONTH
      (DECEMBER 2005) WHILE AT THE SAME TIME HAVE A SHARP AND UNEXPECTED REDUCTION
      IN ECONOMIC ACTIVITY IN THE SAME QUARTER !!!!!

      SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE !

      EXCEPT WITH THE JUNKIES GOVERNING YOUR COUNTRY!!!!

      They are really magicians. But everyone should know that magicians have a trick : they hide the truth and the reality…by definition, and no one understand how and why !!!!!

      As long as you swallow their lies…you will not wake up and realize their tricks !

      By definition this is not…..
      ….a booming economy….As Lula repeats daily how things have changed for the better during his mandate !

      Brazil society has just been brainwashed by Lula. He made you blind of the sad reality !
      You swallow thirstily all his lies !
