Young people left on scrapheap

One in five young adults is not in work or education, figures revealed yesterday.

The Tories say this contradicts a claim made by Peter Hain, the Work and Pensions Secretary, that youth unemployment had been "all but eradicated".

The statistics show a 20 per cent rise in the number of 16-to 24-year-olds doing nothing since Labour gained power.

They will probably stay out of work too. Young people have no chance of getting a job especially when two thirds of new jobs go to recently arrived migrants. Young people are not going to go for jobs which do not give them a future and pay slave wages. The only way this can change is when immigration is stopped which will force businesses to pay fair wages.
