Rome, December 4 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano on Tuesday called for a new "pact between
generations" to help young people struggling to find career
opportunities.
The jobless rate among 15-to-24-year-olds in October was
36.5%, the highest since monthly records began in January 2004
and quarterly records started in the fourth quarter of 1992,
Istat said last week.
The national statistics agency said some 639,000
15-to-24-year-olds are looking for jobs.
Earlier this year Istat said one in five Italians between
the ages of 15 and 29 was Not in Employment, Education or
Training (NEET), according to its calculations for 2010.
"A great challenge is to find the solidarity to overcome
vested interests and selfishness via a pact between generations
that leads to a sustainable model of development for the
construction of a more just, more cohesive and more inclusive
society," Napolitano said.
