Protest at Grayling


“Policy Exchange is hosting a major full day conference looking at the future of the labour market and welfare and skills policy in the UK. The key theme will be how the employment and skills agendas could be coordinated to ensure that unemployment is reduced and that the labour market meets the needs of business in the future. The day will be a great opportunity to hear the views of expert speakers and for businesses, policy makers, politicians and academics to get together to discuss these vital issues.”
Keynote speakers include Minister for Workfare Chris Grayling.
This is on the day the latest unemployment figures are released. It is estimated that over the summer 100,000 public sector will lose their jobs.
