Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Tacking Regional Inequality – Breaking Barriers to Employment

21 January, 2021 - by Martina Anderson MEP

The events of the last year have highlighted the need for a different approach to growing the economy so that no one is left behind.

We need to create space to help people with No or Low qualifications to find work.

A new skills strategy is needed to give people the tools to be able to secure meaningful employment.

It needs to be ambitious, radical and focus on tackling regional inequalities.

Sinn Féin is launching a new policy aimed at improving tackling regional inequality through supporting apprenticeships and job opportunities.

This will create more opportunities for young people to help them find a job.

This will not only boost the economy, it will also help the mental health and wellbeing of young people.

This new employability framework that Sinn Féin sets out, will help people escape the clutches of poverty, deprivation and inequality.

All of this will help transform our society.

By creating jobs and more opportunities we give young people, workers, families and communities a break.
