After the Jarrow March we will be campaigning around the following demands. Get involved in Youth Fight for Jobs in your area, contact your regional organiser on the details below. [This page will be updated with local ‘post-Jarrow’ events and meetings!]
- Create decent jobs- not slave labour.
A massive government scheme to create jobs which are socially useful and apprenticeships which offer guaranteed jobs at the end – both paying at least the minimum wage, with no youth exemptions. The scrapping of ‘workfare’ schemes – benefits should be based on need not forced slave labour.
- Bring back EMA. Scrap uni fees.
The immediate reinstatement of EMA payments, expanding them to be available to all 16-19 year olds. Scrap university fees, for free high quality education.
- Save youth services.
The immediate re-opening of all youth services that have been closed, including reinstating sacked staff.
- Guild good, affordable housing for all.
A massive building programme of environmentally sound, cheap social housing.
