Will young people revolt against shrinking economic opportunity?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about how current economic circumstances are translating into activism amongst young people. Total unemployment for people between 16 and 25 is about 25%. How did lack of economic opportunity fuel the Arab uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia? Join us live at 10 or send us and email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. How will we deal with youth unemployment? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
