Vpliv virusa na mlade

Kako izbruh novega koronavirusa vpliva na mlade in kakšne socialne ter ekonomske posledice prinaša zanje? Delimo podrobnejši vpogled:

Youth tend to work more in those sectors, such as retail and hospitality (including tourism-related), most affected by the lockdown measures, including travel bans, put in place to control the viral spread. Young people are often on temporary contracts or in otherwise insecure and precarious work, and so are more likely to be first to be laid off or to suffer cuts in hours. Moreover, as unemployment rises, they compete for work with older and more experienced workers who have a more settled pattern of employment, and so they are more at risk of long-term unemployment and of a very difficult initiation into the labour market.”
