And yet they Italy has 10% unemployment and 30% youth unemployment. Investment in infrastructure means nothing if you don't have a job. Whilst there may be some nice roads, and bridges that collapse, the point is it does nothing for the people; the Italian people are far worse off now than before adopting the Euro.
Youth unemployment is a big problem everywhere but there are various causes for it that have nothing to do with EU. For instance labour and employment laws, someone else has already mentioned this, education system that is well behind what the economy needs e.g. lots of diplomas that aren't needed to the detriment of the more technical or practical education, etc. etc. etc. And......I'm gonna say something not very nice, but a lot of youth prefers to stay home receiving some sort of social benefits because mom and dad will continue supporting their "little" darlings till they reach their forties.....sometimes there are jobs but there are beneath their "dignity" if you know what I mean..
