Comment 8th August 2010

Dear Sir,

I realise that the idea of your website is to repeal unneccesary laws or red tape, to prevent a plethora of ideas, however I would still like to add a suggestion and apologise if it wastes your time.

As small firms are the lifeblood of this country, could you not as an incentitve to employ, say that any firm which employs someone who is claiming unemployment benefit that if they are employ them, then for the first 6 months then the unemployment benefit which that person was being given would be paid to the firm in question, and then for the next 6 months if the firm keeps the person on, then the firm would be paid half the amount of which the former unemployed person would be given?

The tax which the government would reap from the person should cover the payments made to the firm and it would be an incentive to firms to employ.

Yours sincerely,

A Believer




Why does this matter?

Its a start in tackling unemployment, and also encouraging businesses and showing that the government is prepared to both tackle unemployment and come up with incentives and at the same time appreciate the private sector which after all funds the country.  It is a no loss scenario for the government as the payments made to firms would be covered by the tax the new employee would be paying and they would no longer be on the dole.
