Young Unemployed March from Jarrow

Becky Johnson, Sky News reporter






Hundreds of young people are expected to march through London later to highlight the problem of youth unemployment.


The rally in Trafalgar Square will mark the end of a 330 mile march
from Jarrow in the North East of England to London. Around 30 young
people have made the full journey.


The route was chosen to mirror the Jarrow march in 1936 when more
than 200 jobless men marched to Westminster to highlight high
unemployment.


They handed a petition to the Prime Minster at the time, Stanley Baldwin.


According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) 911,000 people
in the UK under the age of 24 are currently out of work. That has risen
from from 367,000 a decade ago.


Young people account for almost 40% of the unemployed.


The protesters have an appointment at Downing Street to hand in a
petition signed by tens of thousands of disaffected young people.

"I want to see a radical investment in the future of young people. I
want to see investment in creating jobs and also investment in
education, including abolition of tuition fees and reinstatement of EMA"
said Oliver Fournier from Cambridge.


He graduated in the summer with a first class degree but has so far been unable to find full-time work.


A year ago 19-year old Matt Whale from Hull left college with three
good A levels. He told Sky News he has lost count of the number of jobs
he has applied for.


"In Hull there's 83 candidates for every job so you know the
competition for jobs is so big. Some people are going to be left
long-term unemlpoyed, it's ridiculous" he said.


Katie Simpson, who is 23, got a 2:1 in her degree two years ago and she still has not found work.


She said: "Because I'm a young person I don't have much work
experience. The employers can ask for whatever they want now. There's so
much competition."

It does Panda, but it should emphasise the need for a British Government that will put the needs of our own people first and foremost when handing out money from the public purse.

I have yet to hear any so called news reporter comment on the disparity of support given to the Pakistani or Indian economy and the movement of UK jobs to third world countries by both our government and private industry and the funds made available for investment in job development here in the UK.

Morning malena

If Cameron lasts four years as PM it will be a miracle!!!! He attends a meeting of the G20 is the only one to state on T.V. that Britiain is willing to make a
contribution to the IMF when the rest of the G20 Members are reluctant to commit their Countries , yet he won"t look at what is happening in Britain.
You only have to look at the number of shops closed down and the unemployment figures to see how serious the situation is.

With the latest fiasco about Border Control, why not immediately halt immigration unless the person has a job to go to?

Another of my rants is the Education system which shows so many leaving school without any exams. On the News this morning, there was a report
about the March and apparently the worst affected area is Hull . Market stall holders said they would have employed youngsters but they couldn"t even
add up in their heads !!!!

This is not a racist comment but immigration should be stopped and those already here without gainful employment should be repatriated. We have neither the space nor the economy to support the present population let alone add to it.

As far as education, I blame the do-gooders who say we should treat the young as little adults rather than children and giving these 'little adults' the right to report even their parents to social services should they punish them for any wrong doing. I blame teachers who seem want to bond and fraternise with their students rather than remain aloof but available and the education system for introducing new and unproven methods of education when there was nothing wrong with the method then in use. Again this is no racist comment but one of the problems in many of our inner city areas is the lack of English as a common first language in many, not all classrooms and the difficulty of many teachers to communicate with a student's parents.

malena, I am not racist either but the indigenous British population are feeling like aliens in their own country, I know because it is happening around me.

one of the complaints is that the immigrants do not try to integrate or learn the language, this is true.

I really have had a varied career and a few years ago I worked as a clerk in the NHS Clinics. In one clinic in the docks area there were 7 "Link Workers"
whose sole job was to attend Banks, the DHSS, Lawyers etc with Immigrants as translators !!! My Dentist told me that he does occasional work at
Hospitals and gets £9 for a tooth extraction. He had a patient who couldn"t speak English so they had to get a Translator to explain to the Patient about
the treatment. When the Bill came, my Dentist got £9 and the Translator £247.!!!!

when you get Judges allowing Immigrants to stay because they have a cat or are due to marry two hours before deportation there really is no hope.

The young Jarrow Marchers have arrived in Trafalgar square and been interviewed by what must be two of the Leaders. One has a very thick envlope in his
hand which looks like a Petition. He said Tuition Fees should be scrapped, more done to find employment for young people with maybe apprenticeships .

Chris Grayling , the Employment Minister said for every £ earned £4 has been spent and the Whole world has unemployment problems and the Government has spent as much as it can with workshops and not much else can be done.
