Currently, the high and alarming youth unemployment rate in Spain invites to reflect on how this situation was on the previous and early stages of current economic and social crisis. In this article we analyze and reflect upon whether the predominant explanation, based on blaming young people for youth unemployment, eludes other interesting aspects to consider. Our analysis is based on research that combines statistical and documentary review, participant observation and interview (semi-structured and structured), aimed at young people (16-19 years), professionals in the field of formal training and occupation, and responsibles for local administration. The main contribution is firstly, the identification, from empirical analysis, of some reflections about elements that question the blame-discourse to the young and, secondly, the presentation of exogenous elements (alien to young people), which are interesting to be incorporated in the analysis of youth and employment.
