ENCOURAGING EMPLOYMENT – POSITIVE DISCRIMINATION

There are many jobs advertised in Employment Centres, Agencies and Job Websites. I suggest the Government drafts a code of practice to reward companies who take on people looking for work, and shame companies who advertise but don't fill the vacancies.

This might stop false job advertising / exagerating of numbers of vacancies by some Agencies.

This would encourage employers to train and bring unemployment down.

This would bring more legitimate tax payers contributing to the economic recovery.

For those who are long term unemployed, pay an enhanced job-seekers allowance for those who volunteer to do community work or assist charities. Those who decline such opportunities should have their benefits reduced.
