1 in 3 UK employers expect to make staff redundant – Jonathan Reynolds responds

Jonathan Reynolds MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, commenting on a survey which says one in three UK employers expect to make staff redundant between July and September, said:

“This research confirms what many businesses have been saying for months –  the removal of government support while some businesses have yet to even open their doors again has created a jobs crisis.

“Every job lost is a tragedy. We know that unemployment scars employees, their families and their communities. The Government must act now to put an end to this jobs crisis.

“The Government’s one size fits all approach is clearly not working and they must now adopt a tailored approach, getting support to where it is needed to prevent even more redundancies.”
