UK – Young black men have experienced sharpest unemployment rise since 2010

Young black men have experienced the sharpest rise in unemployment since the coalition came to power, with more than one in four of all black 16-24 year olds (26 per cent) currently out of work, according to a TUC report on youth unemployment published today (Wednesday).

The TUC report, published to coincide with the TUC Poverty conference at its central London HQ today, analyses official data on youth unemployment proportions and worklessness rates (16-24 year olds neither in work nor training) over the last decade.

The report also finds that white and Asian youngsters are now twice as likely to be unemployed as those from the same ethnic group over the age of 24.

Young black men are more likely to be unemployed than any other ethnic group, with over one in four (26 per cent) currently out of work. Young black women are the next most likely to be out of work (17 per cent), followed by white and Asian men (both 16 per cent).

Young Asian women have experienced the sharpest rise in unemployment over the last decade, rising from 6 per cent in 2002 to 13 per cent in 2012. However, they are still less likely to be unemployed than most other people their age.

The analysis shows that men are more likely to be unemployed than women amongst all ethnic groups, though the gender divide is starkest among white and black youngsters….
