Government targets unemployed in
In his budget report yesterday, Alistair Darling stated that more help will be offered to jobseekers.

The chancellor announced that the government will create and support up to 250,000 new jobs in a bid to slow down the rate of unemployment in the UK.

In what has been called "Budget for Jobs", people who have been unemployed for over a year or who are under the age of 25 will be offered a job, training or work experience from January.

Mr Darling stated that the government was determined that young people would not be "abandoned to a future on the scrapheap".

In order to create the 250,000 jobs, the government will be delivering local services plus "traineeships in social care and other high demand sectors".

New figures from the Office for National Statistics have revealed that unemployment rose by 177,000 to 2.1 million in the three months to February 2009.
