Gordon Brown announces plans to create 100,000 jobs
Gordon Brown has announced plans to create up to 100,000 new jobs in the UK.

It is hoped that the scheme will ease the pain of the recession using a £10 billion programme of public works projects, similar to that in America in the 1930s.

Some of the projects include school repairs, new rail links, hospital works and development of the new superfast broadband to be rolled out across the country.

There will also be investment in eco-friendly technology such as building electric cars and harnessing wind and wave power, all of which could create jobs.

Mr Brown said he wanted to show he could use "public investments and public works, to create probably 100,000 additional jobs over the next period of time in our capital investment programme".

The British Chambers of Commerce recently claimed that the minimum wage in the UK should not be increased until the country has recovered from the recession.
