Gordon Brown to warn against global youth unemployment epidemic

  What's with all these creeps emerging at the same time--Cheney, Baby Doc and Gordon Brown?


Gordon Brown will warn on Thursday that the world faces youth unemployment of "epidemic proportions", as he urges joint action by the G20 group of developed and developing nations to tackle rising joblessness.

During a speech in London, the former prime minister will call for Barack Obama to take the lead in boosting education, training and job opportunities for the 81 million people under the age of 25 who are currently without work.

"Unemployment is an international timebomb for both developed and developing worlds," Brown will say in the Ted Kennedy/John Harvard memorial lecture.

With some labour market analysts predicting that under-25 joblessness in the UK will edge closer to the 1 million level in today's figures, the former prime minister will say: "The world faces global youth unemployment of epidemic proportions."

Brown will add: "It becomes an even bigger problem if, as I suspect, the numbers of young people denied education which had been falling until last year start to rise and go above 70 million in the years to 2015."

Brown will also say that the G20 will have to make action on youth
I'M A DEPLORABLE KNUCKLEHEAD THAT SUPPORTS PRESIDENT TRUMP.  MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND KEEP HIM SAFE.
