According to Venezuela's historical background, the country's youngest population (Age 15-24) is the one that suffers the most in terms of employment. However, official data reveals that in November those aged 25-44 faced more difficulties to get a job.

Based on data reported by the National Statistics Institute (INE), some 873,513 were unemployed last month, 431,411 of which (49.4%) were aged 25-44.

Compared to the figure reported in November 2011 (334,606 jobless or 39.8%), unemployment rate for said aged group hiked 1.3 percentage points in a year.

Gagging Twitter users

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
