Sounds ok, but all this patting themselves on the back does not whittle down to the man in the street.
Employment figures show a rise but most jobs do not pay a living wage to the proles amongst us who have normal jobs.
I think I've said before that the economic failure was contrived to bring down wages and it has worked.The ones up there thought we were all getting too big for our boots. Now we have to take a job offered or else...

Yes Cathidaw, those in power love unemployment, it keeps us in our place doesn't it?

Small businesses need all the help they can get, but is this simply a way of 'buying' employment? - Election just around the corner!
