In this response to a House of Lords select committee inquiry, NCUB outline the need for short-term and longer-term policy measures to address fundamental changes in the labour market that have particularly affected young people.

The pandemic has had a disproportionate economic impact on young people, who have missed out from less hiring activity. Immediate support for young people is essential but so too is a long-term, collaborative approach to ensure we have a labour market that enables the economy to thrive.
