"Labour just isn't working"
Time for a new slogan .... 'Labour isn't working - and neither are 1 million young people.'
The number of young people out of work, education or training has soared to a record level of almost one million, figures revealed yesterday. dumbledorf Alistair Darling admitted the country risked a ‘lost generation’ as the number of so called Neets rose to nearly 959,000. ("Not in Employment, Education or Training")
The labour party is supposed to be the party of the working classes but it seems to be the party of the unemployed masses, the youngsters of today with no qualifications face a bleak future.Until manufacturing returns to this country we can expect to see unemployment figures for the young soar.
This has been coming for 30 years.The destruction of manufacturing, loss of apprenticeships, greedy short sighted business leaders and inept Government who've only looked at the short term. Hence the loss of skills, meaning importing those skills, the outsourcing of jobs and why we now have a massive and widening gap between the rich and the poor.
Don't expect the Politicians to help, as they're on the gravy train too. How many when leaving Government are found to have had Directorships with the self same companies that have won Government orders and are manufacturing offshore? Yet the indigenous population that have lost their jobs which paid a living salary are classed as scroungers when they can't find a job that will provide a living salary.
