Une conscience aiguë des difficultés de la jeunesse. Les personnes interrogées n'ont pas de doute sur la situation pénible des jeunes Français dans un contexte de crise économique et sociale durable, marqué par un taux de chômage supérieur à 20 %. Un discours critique sur le comportement des jeunes. Signe d'une société vieillissante ?
