1/3 Young People Could be Jobless by Christmas


Young people in Scotland are facing ‘one of the hardest labour markets Scotland has ever seen’.

An IPPR report has found that 1/3 of young people could be jobless by Christmas.

“Following the great recession of 2008, the Government brought forward a Future Jobs Fund targeted at supporting employment. We are calling for a new scheme, targeted particularly, though not exclusively, at young people and focused on the jobs we need to deliver a just transition to a low carbon economy.” – Rozanne Foyer, STUC General Secretary Designate
