Britain faces a jobs crisis: we must fight for jobs, businesses and high streets.

The Government was too slow into lockdown, too slow on testing and too slow to protect jobs. Now, the Chancellor’s one-size-fits-all withdrawal of furlough risks creating a jobs squeeze that will put people’s livelihoods at risk.

We can’t bounce back if we’re stuck in a Tory jobs crisis.

Tens of thousands of people have lost their jobs since the Covid-19 crisis began.

But it isn’t too late to save many more.

Labour is calling on the Government to save jobs, businesses and livelihoods by:

  • Targeting help to the industries and areas that need it most
  • Giving our public services the resources to prepare for any second wave
  • Getting test, trace and isolate functioning properly to build public confidence

 

Labour’s five-point plan for jobs:


Fight for jobs:

fix the furlough scheme to support people in the worst-hit industries.

Back our businesses:

with a £1.7 billion fightback fund to stop firms going under and save our high streets.

Leave no-one behind:

with targeted support for areas forced back into lockdown.

Keep workers safe:

by protecting workers’ rights, by boosting sick pay, making workplaces safe, and giving our NHS and care services the resources to stop a second wave.

Drive job creation:

by investing in infrastructure,  speeding up progress to zero-carbon economy and improving access to skills and training.
