Jobs elude Mexican youth

More than seven million young people cannot find jobs after finishing school as global economic crisis bites.

    The global economic crisis has left millions of youth unemployed and with few options to improve their lives. In Mexico, more than seven million young people have finished school, but can't find work.

    These so called Ninis are often stereotyped as lazy kids who live off their parents, but this is not always the case.

    As part of our series on youth around the world, Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Mexico City.
