Against the backdrop of a special Cabinet meeting today on jobs, tonight #VINB turns his attention to this very important measure of our economic success. Just how are we doing on the jobs front?, how long will it be before we see a dramatic fall in the unemployment figures?
A number of additional measures to help job creation were agreed at this afternoon's special Cabinet meeting on jobs which will be announced in the Action Plan for Jobs for 2013, to be published next month. Proposals include initiatives from local government, NAMA, the National Pension Reserve Fund, and the wider financial sector.
Enda Kenny said the levels of unemployment across the EU and in Ireland were unacceptable when he addressed the European parliament in Strasbourg yesterday. Today, Mr Kenny said the priority is to grow the economy.
Fianna Fáil dismissed this afternoon's special Cabinet meeting as "a scam" that not a single extra job. However, Government sources insist the initiative is a real one.
We’ll see later what Vinny and his panel think of:
* the special Cabinet meeting on jobs
* the unemployment crisis
* the HMV sit-in.
Should be a good show - and it’s 10 minutes longer tonight …
