So, first we slashed the funding for education for 18 year olds
Even if they were half way through a 2 year advanced course.
When was education ever the wrong choice?
Then, if they haven’t yet achieved an advanced course and can’t get a job
We cut their Job Seekers Allowance and require them to join a training scheme
When did training schemes create a single job?
Nearly a fifth of all young people are unemployed
This is a lack of jobs not a lack of training
When did blaming the victims ever solve a crisis?
We need to invest in the future if we want things to get better
If young people are the future, we need to invest in them
If not now, when?
