Listen
AIR DATE: February 22, 2011

At a restless time in the Middle East, non-democratic countries are having to cope with another problem: nearly a quarter of Arabs under 30 are jobless. Long gone are the days of a guaranteed government gig, and the private sector is far from filling the gap. Today, Arab youth are searching for work and waiting for weddings. Some just want to leave the region - and its long unemployment lines - altogether. Host Deborah Amos takes you to Yemen, Jordan, and Morocco, where unemployment and flagging Arab economies may well be creating breeding grounds for extremism and instability.
