Fellow young people are telling me all the time that it’s hard for them to enter the labour market.

Many have worked so hard to gain qualifications but are then denied the opportunity to practise what they have spent years training for.

The Future Jobs Fund, introduced by the last Government encouraged firms to give young people opportunities and gave them the opportunity to gain practical working experience.

It gave recruitment subsidies which helped people unemployed for six months or more into work. Recent employment figures have indicated that it was an initiative that was working. However, the Coalition Government’s decision to thoughtlessly slash the Fund is another blow for young people.
