Unemployment figures another encouraging sign

November 14, 2012 12:05 PM
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats
"This is another encouraging sign. Together with the recent GDP figures, these are signs that the economy is healing.
"The UK suffered a huge economic shock during the financial crisis. Liberal Democrats were clear when we joined the Coalition Government that it would be a choppy road to recovery but that we needed to create the right conditions to support growth and deal with the deficit.
"Liberal Democrats know that what matters to people is not abstract numbers and for everyone who is unemployed, it is a personal tragedy. That is why Liberal Democrats are working hard to help people into work. Young people especially need an extra hand as unemployment for them often leaves scars for decades to come. That is why Nick Clegg has invested £1bn in the Youth Contract, which will give every young person the chance to earn or learn."
