Unemployed should take priority for jobs
THE arrival of the Hiscox insurance company to our city is great news for York, (The Press, Sept 28), creating hundreds of jobs.
I only hope that they can go some way to taking on a lot of people who are out of work due to being made redundant elsewhere, or to college/university leavers, rather than people who are currently employed.
This will reduce the unemployment figures, rather than just shifting them around the system.
There are so many business failing to stay afloat in these economic times, resulting in many people losing their jobs, which ultimately affects their lives, homes, and quality of living, resulting in depression, marriage breakdowns, etc.
Hiscox has the ability to bring some hope to these people.
