Under the Conservatives businesses have created jobs and wages have begun to rise. Thanks to our balanced approach to the economy:
- More people are in work than ever before with 3.3 million jobs created.
- Youth unemployment has almost halved (ONS, Labour Market Statistics, Data series: MFZ2; MFY7, 16 October 2018).
- Wages are growing faster than they have for nearly a decade (ONS, UK Labour Market, 13 November 2018).
- We are giving the NHS the biggest single cash boost in peacetime history (DHSC, Press Release, 19 June 2018).
- We have introduced the National Living Wage and taken millions of people out of paying tax.
