THE CHALLENGE AHEAD
Abstract:This chapter examines youth labour market performance over the past decade in Japan, and assesses the problems faced by today's young people. It presents traditional labour market indicators as well as new ones, such as NEET rates (neither in employment nor in education or training, Section 1). Then, it examines the school‐to‐work transition process, i.e. the road from school to the first job, the mobility of young workers, and their early career stages. The effect of labour market dualism on youth employment is also analysed in Section 2.
