Half of Turkish youth are unhappy, while a whopping 76.2 percent want to move abroad, a recent survey has revealed. The leading cause of distress among the youth is money, with the majority of them saying that Turkish political parties do not produce sufficient policies to address their needs.
Some 40 percent of youth aged between 25-29 are financially dependent on their parents, said a deputy of main opposition CHP. "Some 40 percent of our 6.1 million young people in the age group of 25-29, i.e. 2.5 million, are neither in unemployment nor in education. Due to the ruling government's policies, our youth in this age group are unfortunately living in a way that is depending on their parents,” Veli Ağbaba said.
