Responding to the the publication of the latest set of poor employment figures today, Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Labour Party, said: “Month after month unemployment goes up.
“This is a crisis but the Government simply carries on with more of the same – an economic strategy that isn’t working.
“A further rise in youth unemployment is a particular concern. Long-term youth unemployment is now double what it was a year ago.
“Instead of this dangerous complacency, the Government should be providing real hope to young people.
“They should be taxing the bankers’ bonuses and using the money to help young people back to work.”Other news from The Labour Party
