Work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith has today (July 1st) called on companies to "give young people a chance" by employing them in new roles.
He pointed out that, although immigration plays a big role in Britain, it is important that young people who are out of work are given an opportunity to gain employment and earn a living.
In a speech to the Foundation for Analysis and Social Studies thinktank in Madrid, Mr Duncan Smith said: "We have to ensure that our immigration system works in the interests of Britain, enabling us to make a realistic promise to our young school-leavers."
The Work Foundation has released a new report, entitled A Plan for Growth in the Knowledge Economy, which points out that the skills and ambitions of the nation's workers will have to be harnessed to drive recovery.
