Unemployed youth should become priority

The Institute for Policy Research (IPPR) has warned that despite a recent fall in UK unemployment and extra 200,000 people could be out of work next year.
  • Unemployed under 25’s are likely to top one million in 2013
  • Based on the forecast from Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) 86,000 16-24 year olds would be claiming Jobseekers allowance next year
  • It will continue to be tough for young people and the long term unemployed in 2013
The Chancellor, George Osborne has said that 1.2 million jobs have been created in the private sector since May 2010 – 600,000 more than previously forecast by the OBR.
The government have been urged to guarantee paid work (minimum wage or above) to anyone who has been out of work and claiming job seekers allowance for more than 12 consecutive months.
