Half of young Europeans ready to work abroad

Half of young Europeans ready to work abroad
Source: Eurobarometer

According to the latest Eurobarometer survey, 53% of young people in Europe are willing or keen to work in another European country, but lack of cash discourages many of them from taking a first step towards this by spending part of their education abroad. The survey highlights a huge gap between the widespread desire of young people to work abroad and actual workforce mobility: less than 3% of Europe’s working population currently lives outside their home country. The survey, conducted in the context of the Commission’s ‘Youth on the Move’ strategy, is published on the eve of the 2011 European Youth Week (15-21 May).
