Hundreds of young people out of work for a year or more

A TOTAL of 320 young people in Bulwell and the rest of the Nottingham North constituency have been out of work for more than 12 months.

The figure was revealed by Bulwell’s Labour MP, Graham Allen.

He went on to back a proposal from Labour leader Ed Miliband that would see a guarantee of six months of paid work for 16-to-24-year-olds who have been jobless for more than a year.

This would be paid for by a tax on bankers’ bonuses.
