Fighting youth unemployment 'imperative' says Letta

Rome, May 2 - Fighting youth unemployment in recession-hit Italy is a "categorical imperative", Premier Enrico Letta said Thursday on his return from a European tour. "It is literally the nightmare that is gripping our society, our families," said the premier, whose unprecedented right-left government won confidence votes earlier this week. Youth employment reached 38.4% in March, 3.2% higher than the same month in 2012 and 0.6% higher than February, Istat said Tuesday according to seasonally adjusted provisional data. The statistics agency said 635,000 15-to-24-year-olds were on the dole in March.
