OECD report: Slovenia with high share of young living with parents


More than three-quarters of young people in Italy, Slovenia and Greece live with their parents, shows an OECD report on the situation of the youth in society and on the labour market.

This is due to between one-quarter and one-third of jobs occupied by young people being lost during the financial and economic crisis.

The crisis which started in 2007 hit the young the hardest, and today they are resorting to atypical and temporary forms of work more frequently than older persons.

The number of 15 to 29-year-olds in Slovenia who are employed dropped by 8% between 2007 and 2015, while the total number of people employed was even up slightly, the report says.

On the other hand, Slovenia joins Denmark, Iceland and Norway as the OECD countries with the lowest level of income inequality between the young and other age groups.
