Government needs to take action to support this year’s graduates – Emma Hardy

Emma Hardy MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Further Education and Universities, commenting on Universities UK’s report, Supporting Graduates: The Class of 2020, which calls for paid internships for graduates, said:

“Labour has been calling on Government to take action to support this year’s graduates who are facing a very uncertain future. That’s why we need a Back to Work Budget with a focus on jobs, jobs and jobs.

“These proposals are both sensible and practical and will enable graduates to gain vital work experience and build on the skills and knowledge acquired in their degree courses. The support the proposals are receiving from bodies such as the CBI and the Local Enterprise Partnership Network is a strong indication Government must take them seriously.”
