This article analyses unemployment among young people, both poor and not poor, as well as the major difficulties faced by poor young people in job hunting. The results obtained reveal that poor young people face more difficulties than the not poor young people in obtaining a job. Besides, the main disadvantage faced by poor young people is their low level of education. Nevertheless, in a striking way, the unemployment rate doesn’t show a reduction among the most educated poor young people, unlike the situation for the not poor young people.
Keywords : unemployment; poverty; young people.
