Employment levels have hit new records today, with almost three quarters of working aged people now in work.
Youth unemployment has continued to fall over the year and our successful apprenticeship programme, which the Lib Dems prioritised in government, will help improve that further. Wages are now rising continuously faster than inflation and living standards are rising too.
The role of the Liberal Democrats in government has been crucial to promoting economic stability and a strong recovery. And the work the Lib Dems have led to deal with abuses in zero hour contracts and strengthening the national minimum wage, will help ensure the recovery is also fair.
