According to a survey by a leading business magazine in Germany, the people of Europe are least concerned about any social and economic problem. However, they are quite concerned about their employment. The Europeans do not bother about inflations, rise in crime, and any other social issues prevailing across them. All they need is employment and a typical lifestyle to spend. The survey was typically carried out across 12 countries. The survey represented that the citizens of 7 out of 12 countries are much concerned about losing their jobs. The survey suggested that unemployment is the top concern for 72 percent of Spanish respondents, 69 percent of French and 32 percent of Germans. However, the Germans are found to be most panicked for loss of employment and the Irish and Swedes are least concerned about their jobs according to the study carried out by a non-profit organization called GFK.
Any survey that asks about most pressing problem that needs to be resolved in Europe was answered in “Employment” by a huge number of audiences who took part in the survey. The other problems such as inflation, economic stability, the health system, rents and housing, governance, pensions, education, corruption and crime followed unemployment.
Environmental problems such as climate changes and security issues like terrorism did not find a place in the top ten concerns prevailing in Europe. German came up with 2.5 problems on an average and the Swedes and Irish named only 1.2 concerns on an average. However, 37 per cent people voted for unemployment to be the most worrying concern for the people in Europe.
The leaders of the European Union Summit have taken an initiative to spend 6 billion Euros to tackle the unemployment problems for the youth in Europe. The youth unemployment is found to hit 50 per cent in some of the countries in Europe. The EU commission has adopted the Youth Guarantee Recommendation in April this year, which is expected to offer a job, an apprenticeship, a traineeship, or continued education to the unemployed youth. The European Investment Bank has planned to borrow on markets to provide the youth with an opportunity to be self-employed. The education system is also planned to undergo revision to make the youth more prompt by offering training sessions on entrepreneurship courses in the secondary education courses. The European Network for Youth is planned to be made more proactive so that it can help the youth become capable of finding an employment.
