We own land! Give us cheap and subsidised labour!
A housing association has launched the UKâ€™s first pilot for a new employment programme that will see landlords help unemployed young people get on the career ladder. Proving Talent, a scheme launched last week at the House of Commons and attended by Employment Minister Chris Grayling MP, will pay young people at least the minimum wage in jobs lasting between six months and a year. Radian â€“ which manages around 18,000 homes in the South of England â€“ has now launched the first pilot in the country, offering six places to young unemployed to fill before April.
