Today’s unemployment figure offer no let up for young people in Leigh who are still paying the price for this Government’s economic failure.
Long term local youth unemployment is up 158% in the last year, but ministers still refuse to take decisive action.
This Government has got to wake up to this crisis, they must take action now and they should start with Labour’s Real Jobs Guarantee and get our young people back to work.
The blunt truth is that Britain needs a change of course fast. We are now in the longest double-dip recession since the Second World War. The Government’s failing economic plan has pushed borrowing up by a quarter so far this year.
