The kids aren't alright
The teenagers of today believe that negative portrayal of their kind in the media is affecting their job prospects, a report by the BBC said earlier.
After a survey conducted by Demos, more than two thirds of 14-17-year-olds believe this to be the case. Perhaps the thing of there not being any jobs in the first place could be a factor too.
But Demos said false stereotyping of young people in the media and wider society was having a negative effect on both their self-esteem and employment opportunities. Diddums.
Also, about 80% of teenagers questioned also believed they were more engaged with social issues than their predecessors. Claiming that they believe real change can be made via social media.
More than 1,000 14-17-year-olds from England and Northern Ireland took part.
