Tory Tax Cuts

David Cameron this morning set out the Conservative party’s proposals for dealing with rising unemployment by giving employers a £2500 tax cut in the national insurance they pay for each person they recruit who has been jobless for three months. The effect of this proposal would create 350 000 new jobs and be worth £2.6 billion to employers and is funded out of the money that would otherwise be spent on unemployment benefits.

This is a funded tax cut that helps businesses and equally important gets those people unemployed for a short period back into work. Cameron has understood that short term unemployment very quickly turns to medium then long term unemployment with the inevitable effect that skills acquired are lost and the attractiveness of that employee to potential employers diminishing with time.

    The reality is, as any employer will know, far more effort will go into trying to keep people in a job, than creating new ones. David Cameron fails to address this issue. if this was part of a package, then it would be a good initiative, the trouble is, we need much more than this.
