Jaguar Land Rover urged to give assurances over 36,000 British jobs | Business | The Guardian
[ Tories economic policy for the future is the small state, and nothing else, its the short-term dogma and ideology of the Tories. ] // JLR said it had turned down other locations in Europe, the US and Mexico in favour of Nitra because of a strong supply chain and good infrastructure. Poland has claimed that Slovakia offered high state subsidies to win the factory, which it was not prepared to match. Slovakia has already attracted Germany’s Volkswagen, South Korea’s Kia and France’s PSA Peugeot Citroën, which together build hundreds of thousands of cars in the country each year. The average hourly labour cost in Slovakia is below €10 (£7), less than half that of Britain, according to Eurostat figures. The plant could help reduce JLR’s reliance on Britain, where it had to offer an improved pay and pensions deal last year to avoid strike action.

Two Tory MPs question scale of planned tax credit cuts | Politics | The Guardian
Backbenchers say more protection needed for people working hard in low-paid jobs [...] Their unease is shared by some others within the Conservative party. [...] There is also concern that the decision to slash tax credits is a reversal of David Cameron’s position before the election that he did not want to cut child tax credits. Michael Gove, the justice secretary, also signalled before the election that there would be no cuts to tax credits, saying: “We’re going to freeze them for two years, we are not going to cut them.” [we are all in this together, right!?] &! bit.ly/1N4kSiB - Sanctioned jobseekers with mental health problems are deemed eligible for immediate hardship payments only if they have an accompanying physical health problem. &! bit.ly/1KhEPmd - redefining what sickness and disability is, as they redefined (used) living wage, and redefined child poverty and its measures. >> Tories are cunning scum of PR, Spin Doctors and neoliberals.

Employers warn of 'skills emergency' - BBC News
More than half of employers fear they will not be able to recruit enough high-skilled workers, according to a survey by the CBI. The employers' organisation is warning that a skills shortage is "threatening to starve economic growth". [...] "The government has set out its stall to create a high-skilled economy, but firms are facing a skills emergency now, threatening to starve economic growth," said Ms Hall. "Worryingly, it's those high-growth, high-value sectors with the most potential which are the ones under most pressure. That includes construction, manufacturing, science, engineering and technology. [...] The survey also highlighted concerns about the need for better careers advice to help young people understand more about the jobs likely to be available.

Osborne's Budget: ‘High priest of an austerity cult’ | Politics | The National
At its heart was a commitment to cut the deficit and bring the country in surplus by 2020. Osborne will achieve that partly through cuts to government spending, partly through new tax avoidance measures and substantially with hefty cuts to welfare. // &! John Swinney: The National Living Wage hides an attack on people in low-wage jobs -bit.ly/1CrSapj &! Equality: This Budget continues the project which impoverishes women - bit.ly/1D3dxrX - women make up ~70-77% of recipients of tax credit! &! tax credit essential for families on low income to top up to afford "living" [...] The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations is wholeheartedly against the removal of the automatic entitlement to Housing Benefit for 18 to 21-year-olds. This will have an adverse affect on the life chances and employment prospects of the 28,000 plus claimants in this group – over half of whom have young families of their own – as it could, for many, put their homes at risk. bit.ly/1LYCgWA &! bit.ly/1D3egtb
