China Taiwan Net, December 15th According to Taiwan's "China Times" report, the Taiwanese authorities invested nearly 9.5 billion (New Taiwan dollars, the same below) to encourage youth employment during the peak season of this year. The situation has not reversed in the past five months, and the youth unemployment rate It is even more serious. The latest October unemployment rate statistics released by the Taiwanese "General Accounting Office" shows that the unemployment rate among young people between the ages of 20 and 24 reaches 12.86%, which is not only 3.5 times the overall unemployment rate of 3.72%, but also equals the average of 8 young people in Taiwan. There is one person who is in a state of unemployment. The young man mocked and said, "It is more practical to use the money to pay unemployment benefits."
Cheng Cheng, a professor at the Taiwan University of Political Science, warned that young people already have the titles of "green poverty" and "salary poverty" in the labor market. If a high percentage of them cannot find work, they will fall into serious "political issues". Cheng Zhiyue explained that when young people enter the workplace, they can't find a job because of industrial structure and economic problems. They are not only without income or old age. If the unemployment situation gets out of control, the society will fall into turmoil. When economic means cannot be resolved, in the end, only the "political way" can be used.
Yang Zongbin, a spokesperson for the human resources intermediary agency yes123 in Taiwan, believes that due to the industrial structure, the use of non-academic materials, overseas production orders on the island, and other reasons or division of labor, the high unemployment rate among young people is "can't go back." Unemployment has been decoupled from the economic cycle. Unless there is a complete change, young people will be in a state of high unemployment for a long time in the future.
