New figures reveal youth unemployment at almost 20 per cent in the Moreton Bay North region,

Brotherhood of St Lawrence figures have revealed under-employment of young Australians has hit its highest level in nearly four decades.
The Brotherhood of St Laurence analysis of Australian Bureau of Statistics data found more than 580,000 young Australians were either under-employed or unemployed.
While Queensland is worst for youth unemployment nation wide, new figures reveal youth unemployment at almost 20 per cent in the Moreton Bay North region, which includes Redcliffe and Caboolture.
ONE-in-four youths were unemployed in Redcliffe at times during the past 12 months according to new figures which reveal the suburb is among the worst in Queensland for youth unemployment.
On average, almost 20 per cent of people aged 15 to 24 were unable to find a job during the past 12 months.
The statistics, collated by Queensland Treasury from July 2013-14, show Moreton Bay North — which includes Redcliffe and Caboolture — has the highest number of unemployed youth in Queensland.
Proportionally, the statistics rank Redcliffe and Moreton Bay North (18.8 per cent) third in Queensland with youth unemployment only higher in Cairns (20.4 per cent) and Ipswich (20.1 per cent).
