Underemployment isn’t only a problem in the United States. It’s a global issue. In our July Interview with Maureen Judge, director of the Canadian documentary, My Millennial Life, she discussed the underemployment problem hanging over many of Canada’s youth.
Since our website launched back in March we’ve received several emails from people in other countries asking to write for us. In response to that request, we’re debuting a new section: Underemployment Around the Globe. The section will feature voices from around the world, talking about their lives, and sharing what their underemployed life looks and feels like for them.
In preparation for that new section we selected as this week’s clip a news report from Australia on increasing underemployment among the country’s younger population. The video is a little under four minutes, and we’d swear, if you took away the adorable Aussie accents, you’d have little idea you weren’t watching news from the United States.
