5 things Labour has done for young people

  1. Creating new jobs for 16-24 yr olds
    In Wales, Labour has invested in job opportunities for young people. Its flagship Jobs Growth Wales programme has had an extra £25 Million this year to help young people get a decent job with decent pay.
  2. Cheaper bus tickets
    Welsh Labour knows that young people need to travel to work, college or school and see their friends. That’s why Labour cut the price of bus tickets for 16, 17 and 18 year olds with our mytravelpass bus pass. See Google to find out more.
  3. Help with Education costs
    Welsh Labour has protected EMA so 16-18 yr olds can afford to study (abolished in England in 2010).
    You and your parents shouldn’t have to worry about out of control £9k university tuition fee costs. Welsh Labour pays just over £5k of your annual fees so you have less money worries while you are at University.
  4. Protecting Future Generations
    Welsh Labour has passed the path-breaking Well Being of Future Generations Act which forces all public bodies to think and act sustainably so that the world you will inherit is worth living in.
  5. Libraries, Museums and Galleries are Free to use.
    In Cardiff, that includes the National Museum and St Fagans as well as your local library.
