Wednesday 7 March, 2018 THE WEEKLY TIMES 7 Council responds to alarming youth unemloyment gure H ity of yde will tae ation to ght loal youth unemployment, which has left more than one in ten school leavers out of work. The latest Census statistics reveal that 14.7 per cent of Ryde residents aged 15 to 24 years of age are unemployed and there are not enough local jobs to meet demand. The council’s action follows a plea from Ryde Young Citizen of the Year Rhett Prado to urgently work to reduce this alarming statistic . “Youth unemployment and underemployment is an alarming issue facing the community of Ryde,” he said. “With housing prices pushing up the cost of living, Ryde’s younger citizens are findin it harder to make ends meet.” The City of Ryde has an intern program to support young workers as well as a partnership project with the University of Technology for newly uaified enineers will now investigate opportunities to expand its current intern program. “Providing more opportunities for local graduates and apprentices to gain vital work experience will provide a great stepping stone for those struggling to find or r Laxale said. “Expanding the Council’s intern program is just one initiative and I will be working with Coun- iors and sta over the next year to try and identify ways in which we can address youth unemployment in the City of Ryde.” Bennelong MP John Alexander has been a strong advocate for creating job opportunities for young, unemployed locals but Mayor Laxale wants a reater eort. “More needs to be done at all levels of government to assist young people in findin epoent opportunities.” We want work! Michael Paine, Rhett Prado, Mayor Jerome Laxale, Rebecca Lahanas and Clr Dr Peter Kim have called on all sectors of government to work together to help reduce Ryde youth unemployment rate.
