Young people in our area desperately need action on jobs as long term youth unemployment continues to rise.

The unemployment statistics published earlier this week show that the number of young people out of work for a year in the Rother Valley is up 150% in the last year, yet complacent ministers refuse to take the decisive action they need to get young people off benefits and into work.

Many young people across the country would be helped into work if the Government stopped tinkering around the edges and brought in plans to use a tax on bankers’ bonuses to create jobs.
