Labour pledges 'jobs guarantee' for long-term unemployed
The Labour Party says it will guarantee a job for the long-term unemployed, if it is re-elected.
The party has pledged £1bn to enable employers to meet the cost of hiring the 130,000 people who have been out of work for more than two-years.
Shadow work and pensions secretary Liam Byrne told BBC News that "if you want welfare to work to genuinely work, then you need jobs."
