Build One SA deems the Quarterly Labour Force Survey troubling for youth employment

# Build One South Africa has declared today’s release of the Quarterly Labour Force Survey for the third quarter as a bouquet of bad news for the youth. It says the survey discloses distressing trends, revealing that three in every five young people between the ages of 15 and 24 are grappling with unemployment, amounting to a staggering 4.5-million people. BOSA leader Mmusi Maimane calls on young people to take action during the upcoming special registration weekend, for a change in government and to address the pressing issue of high youth unemployment.
