Christian charity blames lack of jobs for rise in 'Neets'

A Government minister says young people lack the "confidence, grit, self-control" needed for the workplace.

Nick Hurd was speaking after latest figures reveal 1.09 million youngsters are out of work, education or training.

John Wheatley is from Christian charity Frontier Youth Trust which has recently conducted some research into youth unemployment.

He told Premier's Victoria Laurence on the News Hour he doesn't agree with Mr Hurd: 

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
