Jonathan Reynolds – 2020 Comments on Kickstart Scheme

The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, on 12 November 2020.

These latest figures show the Government’s Kickstart scheme is failing to deliver for young people, creating opportunities for just 3% of the 600,000 young people unemployed. The Government must be much more ambitious if we are to prevent a generation scarred by long term unemployment.

It is worrying that months into this jobs crisis we still have no plan from this Government to tackle rising unemployment and get Britain back to work.
