Banker bonuses for young people


MAKERFIELD’S MP is calling for a tax on bankers’ bonuses to fund jobs for Wigan’s young people.

Under Labour’s Compulsory Jobs Guarantee, every young person out of work in the borough for more than 12 months will be given a paid starter job which they will have to take up or lose their benefits.

If Labour’s Compulsory Jobs Guarantee were introduced today over 350 young people in Wigan would benefit.

Yvonne Fovargue said: “Too many young people in Wigan are struggling to find work and not seeing any economic recovery at all.

“We risk losing the energy and talents of a generation and repeating failed Tory mistakes. That’s why I support Labour’s Compulsory Jobs Guarantee to get Wigan’s young people in Wigan back to work.”
