Scott Brison: Mr. Speaker, in December young Canadians lost another 12,000 jobs. In fact, there are 264,000 fewer jobs for young Canadians today than before the downturn. Canadian youth struggle to find work, and Canadian parents struggle to pay the bills. Instead of wasting millions of tax dollars to advertise a jobs program that doesn't even exist, will the Finance Minister admit there's a problem, and commit to a real jobs plan for young Canadians in the upcoming budget? Or is he so out of touch with young Canadians and their struggling middle class families?

    (www.abndigital.com) The youth employment subsidy is viewed as one pillar of a multi-pronged approach to addressing and alleviating youth unemployment. In the 2nd Quarter of 2010, the unemployment rate of the 15-34 year olds was 51.2% and 60.3% if the broad unemployment definition is applied. Last week, South Africa's official opposition, the Democratic Alliance marched to the offices of the country's largest union federation, the Congress of South African Unions, to hand over a memorandum. The memorandum sought to demand government wage subsidies for young people, which the party says would create more than four hundred thousand jobs.

The World Bank's 2013 World Development Report found that 620 million are economically "idle" (not in education, employment or looking for work) -- with estimates reaching up to a staggering 70 or 80 percent in the Pacific. But what is causing youth un- and under-employment? What is the role of public policy, and can we better engage the private sector in abating the problem? Watch a discussion on how to address this issues with panelists Stephen Close, Human Development Specialist at the World Bank; Richard Curtain, Public Policy Consultant in Timor-Leste and the Pacific, and Visiting Fellow at the Development Policy Centre, and Dr Jioji Ravulo, Lecturer, Social Work and Community Welfare Studies, University of Western Sydney. This event is part of the Praxis Discussion Series 2013, connecting to Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste. Recorded: Friday, October 4th Moderator Auskar Surbakti, Journalist, ABC

(www.abndigital.com) The youth employment subsidy is viewed as one pillar of a multi-pronged approach to addressing and alleviating youth unemployment. In the 2nd Quarter of 2010, the unemployment rate of the 15-34 year olds was 51.2% and 60.3% if the broad unemployment definition is applied. Last week, South Africa's official opposition, the Democratic Alliance marched to the offices of the country's largest union federation, the Congress of South African Unions, to hand over a memorandum. The memorandum sought to demand government wage subsidies for young people, which the party says would create more than four hundred thousand jobs. The march was eventually abandoned because of clashes that broke out between the DA and COSATU. Joining ABN's Hannah Viviers to discuss the youth wage subsidy as an employment strategy is Economic Policy Co-ordinator and Economist, Professor Iraj Abedian who is CEO of Pan African Capital Holdings, Chris Malikane, Economic Policy Co-ordinator of COSATU, and from our studios in Cape Town, Tim Harris, the DA's shadow minister of Finance.
