The EU is failing and the jobs scheme will also fail

EU member states need to make more efficient use of €6 billon in EU funds to ease the transition from education to jobs for young people and foster entrepreneurship, urged MEPs in Wednesday's debate on the European Youth Initiative. Some advocated simplifying funding procedures, sharing best practices, and promoting apprenticeships, whilst others urged member states to do more to exploit the job-creating potential of new energy-saving and green technologies.

Jane Collins said that the EU "is failing and the jobs scheme will also fail". She also said that "we would need 21 billion euros, not just 6 billion”, adding that “Keeping the doors wide open to immigration makes it hard for young people to compete for jobs".
