Windsor candidates make graduate job pledges
Thursday, 22 April 2010
Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in retail may be interested to hear that the three main parliamentary candidates for Windsor have said they will create more jobs for graduates and young people.
Their commitment comes in the wake of new figures show the number of people unemployed in the UK rose by 43,000 to 2.5 million during the three months to February.
Conservative Adam Afriyie said that his party would reduce taxes on businesses, while Liberal Democrat Julian Tisi said that his party would raise income tax personal allowance, while Labour's Amanjit Singh Jhung said his party would create more jobs.
During a debate on BBC Radio Berkshire, Mr Afriyie said: "We are going to remove the taxes on the first ten employees in any small businesses. We are [also] going to introduce thousands of new apprenticeships for young people.
"We [would also] remove this tax on jobs that Labour are introducing through employer's national insurance."
The leaders of the three main parties will be locking horns for the second time tonight (April 22nd) in the latest instalment of the televised leaders' debates.
