Doing things differently to solve unemployment

Commenting on news that 5000 extra Scots were unemployed in January 2018, Duncan Thorp of Social Enterprise Scotland said:

“Creating more jobs means doing things differently. All government employment and business support services should prioritise social enterprise options.

“We must also grow the number of independent community co-operatives for food, energy and housing and continue exploring innovations like Universal Basic Income.

“Poor quality jobs and rising unemployment are not inevitable.”
