star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to increasing the opportunities for full-time employment across the UK. That is why we introduced the Employment Allowance in April 2014 which entitles businesses and charities to a £2,000 allowance on their annual National Insurance contributions bill. The allowance is reducing the cost of employment, supporting small businesses aspiring to grow by hiring their first employee or expanding their workforce.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We are also abolishing Employer National Insurance contributions for under 21s on earnings up to £813 a week from April 2015 helping to support full-time employment for young people. The Government will of course continue to look at further ways to support full-time employment across the UK.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>A key purpose of the Hartz reforms was to increase flexibility in the German labour market and reduce tax pressures on low-paid and temporary workers. It helped Germany stop a long-term increase in unemployment.</p><p> </p><p>The UK unemployment rate currently stands at 4.3%, a 42 year low. The UK ranks very well internationally on labour market flexibility. It is a key strength of our economy and has played an important role in achieving the near record employment levels that we currently enjoy.</p><p> </p><p>We also exempt many low-paid jobs from income tax. This government has increased the personal allowance, and as a result, 1.2m individuals will be taken out of income tax altogether by 2018-19 compared to 2015-16.</p><p> </p><p>We are also introducing Universal Credit, a long overdue and necessary reform. It responds dynamically to changes in income and ensures that it always pays to work more.</p> more like this
