Jobs in short supply for young Mexicans

Al Jazeera revisits one young worker struggling to hold onto job amid hard times for many in Mexico City.

    Young people in Mexico are still struggling with unemployment as tough economic times make secure jobs hard to come by.

    Al Jazeera first met Paola Alcazar in January, when she was selling clothes at a market and doing unpaid work as a community organiser.

    Alcazar has since found paid work as a government employee, but she says she has to compete against her peers to keep her position.

    Al Jazeera's Franc Contreras reports from Mexico City.
