Unemployment in Europe: Young and jobless, a lost generation?
It's crunch time for French President François Hollande, with the number of unemployed now close to three million people. But the outlook for young adults is particularly bleak. It's the case not just here in France, but across Europe, where youth unemployment continues to soar to record figures. Annette Young and her panel discuss whether European political leaders are up to the job of restoring economic security, or if this is to be a lost generation.
