Due to the Pandemic, Young People Feel Damaged Permanently

Suara.com – Young people around the age of 10 to 25 years and over believe that Covid-19 will change their lives. Even in the new study, it is said that children of this age feel permanently harmed.

Launching from Independent, research from the UK found that two in three children said competition for jobs had increased. They find it impossible to find work in the future.

Meanwhile, nearly a third said the pandemic had made them feel less likely to pursue further work especially because of the impact of education on the pandemic.

Nearly three out of five respondents said the government had failed to deal with them in handling Covid-19.

The survey was conducted on more than 5,000 young people aged 10 to 25 in the UK. They found that half of school-age children also felt that they had fallen behind in the past year. While two thirds of them feel pressure to ‘catch up’ lessons quickly.

“Young people are the DNA of the future of this country, and we cannot face a situation where the majority of them feel like they cannot change their path or improve their quality of life and opportunities,” said Co-op Group Chief Executive Steve Murrells.

“To make up for what was lost, truly rebuild better and ensure no young people or communities are left behind, we need bold and urgent concerted action across government, business and education to ensure youth are actively considered.” .

Antoinette Bramble, who chairs the British Association of Children and Youth Councils, said the pandemic had had a profound impact on young people.

“This arises either by disruption to education or by the challenges presented by a changing job market,” Bramble said.
