Youth Fight for Jobs protest in Wales
Campaigners against youth unemployment from all over Wales converged on the Welsh Assembly on Wednesday to highlight the scourge of youth unemployment in Wales. Speakers from YF4J, PCS, UCU and young unemployed pointed out the stark lack of choices for young people looking for work in the recession.
Ross Saunders from Youth Fight For Jobs called on the Assembly politicians to fight instead of begging Bosch executives to see reason over the loss of 900 jobs from its Miskin plant. "They should demand the £21 million pound grant back and call for the nationalisation of the plant" he said.
