Labour Analyst Michael Bagraim says the unemployment issue continues to be the biggest worry in South Africa, especially to the youth.

Bagraim says their latest survey, Afrobarometer study released in August has shown that 54% of people between the ages of 18 and 35 lack jobs.

He says despite the problem of unemployment being faced by the rest of the world but South African youth is facing the worst.

Bagraim says through the survey it has transpired that black youth in SA is affected by unemployment more than other races.
