CBI: Getting the UK Working

Getting the UK Working

The CBI is calling on government and businesses to step up to the challenge of rising unemployment - especially youth unemployment - and urging them to work together on the new Youth Contract and Work Programme

Getting the UK Working remains at the top of the agenda for British business in 2012. With unemployment expected to rise to 2.75 million, tough decisions need to be taken now about how to secure private-sector growth and boost job creation, as well as reform the UK's education, skills and welfare services.

With youth unemployment topping 1 million, supporting young people into jobs - and sustainable jobs in particular - must be a foremost priority if the UK is to avoid a lost generation.
