Mission 2: Opportunity
Opportunities to work, learn and succeed, where you live
- High quality education, skills training and careers advice
- An economy that works for everyone with good jobs and decent wages
- The best place in the UK to start and grow a business
- Good quality homes for local people to buy or rent
West Cheshire’s £10.5 billion economy is home to 14,000 businesses employing 180,000 people. We helped attract almost £300 million of investment into our borough last year and we need to ensure the benefits of this are shared. Our vision is for decent homes, good jobs, healthier lives and nice things to see and do in well-connected and vibrant communities.
Last year we supported over 2,500 adults to learn new skills and almost 700 people to get a new job. By joining up education, skills, training and employment, with a local living wage, a fair employment charter and recognition for businesses and other organisations that are socially responsible, we will make our area one of the best places to live, work, learn, visit and do business in our country.
This is Labour’s vision for a stronger, fairer and more inclusive local economy. That’s why a vote for Labour is a vote for HOPE on Thursday 4th May.
