Backing the European Youth Guarantee

European Youth Guarantee campaign logo

Both the biggest single reason for Britain to stay in Europe and the most needed reform of the European Union centre on jobs.

Three million British jobs directly depend on our membership of the EU and the single market. In my own region of the north-west tens of thousands of people are employed in the defence and auto industries, which are located in the UK in part because of the access this gives to the world’s biggest single market.

European Youth Guarantee in Genova

Italian Socialist Youth is campaigning to promote the EYG (European Youth Guarantee) in Italy: in February different University teachers are sitting at the same table to debate about the European Youth Guarantee in Genova!

We will ask them about the economical, juridical and social advantages that a Youth Guarantee would bring to Italy and to Europe all.

Meanwhile, an Italian Member of the parliament - Pietro Ichino, who stands for Mario Monti - declared that the EYG is a EU project, forgetting that it is a Socialist campaign... but we suddenly remind it to him.

 

See you in February in Genova to campaign together for a European Youth Guarantee!
