Young people who have been unemployed are scarred by the experience. The younger they are, the more likely they are to be jobless later in life. Young employees can be badly affected by a period of unemployment. A new study finds that unemployment has disturbing long-term negative effects. People’s early employment history turns out to be a decisive factor in relation to later success in working life. “I believe this finding can be used to justify substantial efforts targeting young people,” says Professor Øivind Anti Nilsen. In conclusion, Reise and Nilsen say that the results clearly show that a person’s early employment history is a decisive factor in relation to subsequent success in working life. “These findings can be used to justify public efforts targeting young people,” says Nilsen.
