One in eight Scottish men under 25 is now unemployed, according to a new study which highlights the poverty faced by under 30s.
The ‘Monitoring Poverty and Social Exclusion in Scotland 2015’ report by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation found that among working-age adults, there has been a rise in the number in poverty among the under-30s by 29,000, and a fall of 67,000 among 30- to 64-year-olds.
While the poverty rate for children and pensioners has fallen, working-age poverty has risen from 19 per cent to 21 per cent.
