labours new deal for the young just cheap Labour

With unemployment still amongst the highest in Europe, young Scots are being used as cheap Labour by many employers who get a subsidy from London to employ them. They then skimp on training and save on National Insurance contributions.

The princes trust, run by the Prince of Wales has said this new deal has failed and seems not to offer training or a real chance of a job after the term is over.

This is Blairs third way, we see now why he was so reluctant to sign up for the EU social chapter like his Tory friends before him.
