Young black men have experienced the sharpest rise in unemployment since the coalition came to power, with 26% of all black 16-24 year olds currently out of work, according to a TUC report on youth unemployment. Young black women are the next most likely to be out of work (17 per cent), followed by white and Asian men (both 16 per cent). Young Asian women have experienced the sharpest rise in unemployment over the last decade, rising from 6 per cent in 2002 to 13 per cent in 2012. However, they are still less likely to be unemployed than most other people their age.
