Hertford President advocates a National Youth Corps

first_imgTheletter urges the government to announce its intent to follow this plan as soonas possible, with the necessary funding pledged at a similar time. In order forit to be successful, it would have to be up and running before the end of theacademic year in July. If the government should choose to run the scheme, it isestimated that up to one million 16-25 year-olds would apply to be part of it. Organisedby Hutton, the letter has been co-signed by, among others, MP Rushanara Ali,Sarah Atkinson of the Social Mobility Foundation and Kirsty McHugh of the Mayor’sFund for London. It calls for a government-funded programme to create work andtraining opportunities for 16-25 year-olds, guaranteeing at least minimum wage,to run until the end of 2021. The letter concludes that “the Youth Corps has the potential to be a crucial building block in getting the whole of Britain back to work, both in providing opportunities for young people at a crucial moment in their lives and in creating an army of workers who can help propel a faster economic recovery than would otherwise be the case. It is a moral and economic imperative.” This generation of graduates, he notes, is facing the toughest labour market for 75 years, with 30% of university students having lost a job or job offer. Many are being affected permanently – a report from think-tank Resolution Foundation warned last week that younger workers risk their pay being affected for years to come and that more than a third of 18-24 year-olds are currently earning less than they did at the start of the year. Terming this generation of students “Generation ‘Covid’”, Hutton writes that “through no fault of their own, [they] face having their lives altered as no other generation since the war, with scars that will last their entire lives. Our national conversation must now incorporate how we act to turn this looming disaster into an opportunity.”center_img Crucialto the programme will be a personal mentoring facility, through which membersof the Youth Corps can be helped to adapt to the changing conditions of thelabour market. The plan calls for employers based in the UK to pledge a varietyof job opportunities, which should include offers from the government, the NHS,apprenticeships, voluntary organisations, community leadership academies, andmany more. These job offers would then distributed to National Youth Corpscentres across the country, as well as being accessible to members via an app. Inan open letter published by TheGuardian, Herford College President Will Huttton has called for the establishmentof a National Youth Corps to guarantee job opportunities for current studentsand school-leavers across the country.

first_imgPhoto: PixabayALBANY – New York State has temporarily halted the collection of medical and student debt owed to the state for at least 30-days in an attempt to diminish the financial burden of the novel Coronavirus.Governor Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Letitia James say in an effort to support workers and families the AGs’ office will halt the collection of medical and student debt owed to the State of New York and referred to the OAG for collection through April 15.After the 30-day period, the government will reassess the needs of state residents for a possible extension. Additionally, officials say they will accept applications for suspension of all other types of debt owed to the State of New York and referred to the AG for collection.“As the financial impact of this emerging crisis grows, we are doing everything we can to support the thousands of New Yorkers that are suffering due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Governor Cuomo said. “This new action to temporarily suspend the collection of debt owed to the state will help mitigate the adverse financial impact of the outbreak on individuals, families, communities and businesses in New York State, as we continue to do everything we can to slow the spread of the virus.” The OAG collects certain debts owed to the State of New York via settlements and lawsuits brought on behalf of the State of New York and state agencies. A total of more than 165,000 matters currently fit the criteria for a suspension of state debt collection, including, but not limited to:Patients that owe medical debt due to the five state hospitals and the five state veterans’ home;Students that owe student debt due to State University of New York campuses; andIndividual debtors, sole-proprietors, small business owners, and certain homeowners that owe debt relating to oil spill cleanup and removal costs, property damage, and breach of contract, as well as other fees owed to state agencies.The temporary policy will also automatically suspend the accrual of interest and collection of fees on all outstanding state medical and student debt referred to the OAG for collection, so New Yorkers are not penalized for taking advantage of this program.New Yorkers with non-medical or non-student debt owed to the State of New York and referred to the OAG, may also apply to temporarily halt the collection of state debt.
