Million Jobs Campaign

clip_image002The Liberal Democrats in government have helped business create more than a million private sector jobs, and now we’re working to help create a million more.
In government, we have helped create:

· Jobs for young people – 1.2m apprentices and 110,000 work placements for young people out of work

· Jobs in manufacturing – £5.5bn extra into science, high-tech manufacturing and renewable energy

· Jobs across the country – £2.6bn in our Regional Growth Fund, giving money to growing businesses around the country

· Jobs building Britain – £15.3bn to improve Britain’s roads, railways and housing

· Help for job creators – £2,000 cash back to employers on the tax they pay on their employees, to make it more affordable for businesses to take on staff

· Green jobs – £3bn to fund the world’s first Green Investment Bank, putting extra money into renewable energy

· Rural jobs – £530m to improve access to superfast broadband, creating jobs and helping rural businesses

Now we are campaigning to double the number of workplaces who offer apprenticeships in the UK – from 100,000 to 200,000.

Chester Liberal Democrats Chairperson, Mark A Williams, said, “I welcome the news that Libdems in government are helping to create jobs and must needed and valued new apprenticeship places. This is helping to build a stronger economy and is great news for the North West too!”
