It was suggested that this amounted to 79%.
In particular, in the question using the self-diagnosis (CES-D) scale, it was found that young adults with a household income of 2.5 million won or less had 24.93 points and those with high school graduates 24.90 points, which was close to severe depression (25 points). Dr. Nam said, "The impact of Corona 19 seems to act as a threat to youth's life through economic factors. It is analyzed that it has a greater impact on youth with unstable status, low education, and low income in the labor market."
In his presentation, CEO Bok-kyung Seo said, “The impact of Corona 19 is not equal,” citing that only 19.75% of those with a four-year graduation or higher were compared to 44.4% of those with a high school diploma or less experienced unemployment. Considering that the recent college enrollment rate is only in the 70% range and the number of four-year college graduates is about 42%, it is predicted that the situation will be worse if there is no accurate and preemptive response from the government.

In addition, he pointed out "the reality that the government is not responding properly to young people, such as cutting related budgets while reading the difficulties of young people."
Researcher Yubin Kim of the Korea Labor Institute said, “The number of employed people decreased to 466,000 in April, but the impact was concentrated on the vulnerable groups such as young women and temporary and daily workers.” “A special youth prepared for the limitations of existing youth policies and prolonged employment shock. We need employment measures.” He also pointed out “the situation where the search cost for job search information is very high,” and said, “It is necessary to provide policy information through online youth centers.”
Counselor Bong-Seok Choi (Seoul Financial Welfare Counseling Center) mentioned'the trend of increasing youth debt and financial counseling due to the impact of Corona 19'. Revealed. In order to prevent the low-income youth who are marginalized from financial services from falling into a vicious circle, they proposed expanding debt adjustment opportunities, supporting short-term asset formation programs, and providing loan support that minimizes damage to financial institutions and high interest rates.
"Seoul City has been responding to Corona 19 this year with emergency support for youth allowance and rapid support for youth freelancers," said Kim Young-gyeong, who served as the last debate. We will actively review them and support the youth so that they can draw a better future.”
While organizing the debate, CEO Seo prepared a'various support plan for young people to endure the impact of Corona 19 and try to change' to the government, and'a public policy DB and a dense policy delivery network to bridge the gap in information accessibility'. He stressed that it requires urgent effort to build.
