Jobs boost as 1600 Watford businesses take advantage of Government tax break

Friday, 7 November, 2014
Figures released today show that 1600 business in Watford, Oxhey and Abbots Langley have benefitted from a tax break introduced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer earlier this year.
Interesting statistics, however in talking to people recently who are involved at the sharp end of placing young people into work we see that many of these 'new' roles are being used to obtain low cost employees with little promise of long term jobs... after the period of entitlement the young person can often find themselves back out of work... and another taken on under the scheme to replace them... skills learned during the work period have varied to. Some people are taken on and become part of the team others are involved in more menial work and then return to unemployed...
