Clare YFG Launch Jobs Campaign

Young Fine Gael (YFG) in County Clare will launch a campaign to highlight Fine Gael's solutions to the jobs crisis that has hit young Ireland. The campaign entitled "working to get you working" will be launched.

Young Fine Gael Spokesperson Cillian Griffey said: "Currently there are 2026 under 25s on the dole in Co.Clare. Since the last election there are 1190 more under 25s on the dole. That's an increase of 142.3 per-cent. Unfortunately the Government has no solutions, or hope, to offer young people.

"Also concerning is the trend in Irish people emigrating, which saw an increase of more than one-third last year. A recent Youth Work Ireland poll indicated that half of 12 – to 18 – year olds believe they will have to leave Ireland to find work after completing their studies.

"Young Fine Gael want to offer young people a future in their own country. That is why we have outlined a series of measures that will create 50,000 jobs this year and many more in the future.

"Fine Gael is the only Party to offer plans to tackle youth unemployment:

• Our Hope for a Lost Generation policy will bring 30,000 young people off the dole in one year by directly targetting youth unemployment with workshare schemes, a National Internship Programme and by increasing the number of places available on further education and retraining programmes;

• Our NewERA stimulus package will provide an €18 billion stimulus to the economy and create 100,000 jobs. We also propose employment-focused tax cuts and support for small businesses to reduce unemployment across all age profiles.

"YFGs campaign is a positive one communicating to young people that there is a better way. We believe the time for action is now!"
