2013 / Canada / 43min


Generation Jobless explores the crisis of overeducated youths being underemployed – scraping by in low-paid, part-time jobs that do not require a degree just to pay off their debt, while struggling to find 'real' jobs. Some call them "the lost generation", but it is not only young people who will pay the price. Youth unemployment and underemployment is a ticking time bomb with consequences for everyone.
