70 Jobs Created In Denbighshire By Welsh Labour Government
70 people have found new job opportunities through Welsh Labour’s Jobs Growth Wales scheme Denbighshire, Labour AM Ann Jones has revealed.
Figures provided by the Welsh Labour Government show in total 1,838 jobs have been filled across Wales with 70 in Denbighshire since the programme was introduced in April.
As well as creating job opportunities for unemployed young people, the posts created by Jobs Growth Wales are additional to the workforce and therefore helping Welsh businesses to expand. Participants are paid at or above the National Minimum Wage for a minimum of 25 hours per week.
Ann Jones said:
“I’m delighted that jobseekers are finding work through Welsh Labour’s Jobs Growth Wales programme. This is a good start and I hope the numbers of jobs created continues to grow.
“The creation of this initiative was one of Welsh Labour’s key pledges at last year’s Assembly election and we are delighted that the initiative is now delivering for people and businesses in Denbighshire and North Wales more widely.
“While the Westminster Tory-led Government continues to strangle the economy with its savage spending cuts, the Welsh Labour Government has gone down a different route, and is focused on investing in the economy and jobs.”
