FF bend over backwards to save Deer, but can't be bothered to save jobs

Speaking about the rise in Live Register figures, Young Fine Gael (YFG) President, Barry Walsh, said: " Figures for June indicate a further 6,000 under 25s on the dole.

Despite the fact that young people are losing their jobs and leaving the country in droves, the Government has just spent the last week worrying about saving deer.

"Many young people are emigrating or returning to an under-funded education system masking the real unemployment figure, which is higher than the statistics suggest.

"The seasonally adjusted figure for under 25s is alarming (up 3,000) as it indicates that young people can't even get casual summer work. We believe the emigration rates are due to soar in the autumn when facing into another winter on the dole hits home.

"YFG is calling on the Government to immediately implement Fine Gael's plan to get 30,000 under 25s off the dole in one year."
