Mexican youth struggle to find jobs

More than seven million young Mexicans are jobless, with the situation among young women even worse.

    The global economic crisis has forced millions out of job, but it has been particularly hard for young people.

    In Mexico, the unemployment level among young people is nearly twice the national average, with more than seven million citizens between the ages of 15 and 29 out of work.

    The situation for women is even worse as they struggle to find jobs. A recent study has found that unemployment is highest among the most educated women.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney follows the story of one woman's challenge to find a job in Mexico City.
