ABSTRACT
This article discusses the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. According to the author, much of the unrest in the area has been fueled by unemployment. It is suggested that rather than improving as protesters had hoped, the job situation in Arab countries will continue to worsen because of demographic pressures and significant drops in tourism and investments.
