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?
Strong sentiments Eddie. I’m glad you are voicing what we are all feeling.
