Nearly half of Britain's young black people are jobless
Figures from the Labour Force Survey reveal that unemployment among young black people (aged 16-24) in Britain is a shocking 44% – over twice the rate of their white counterparts, of whom 20% are jobless. One of the causes of high black unemployment is shared by working class males whatever their color. Structural changes in the British economy mean that many blue-collar jobs no longer exist. The question is why do the British continue to allow blacks to migrate to Britain when they are largely unemployable?
