Conservatives hold the key to a strong employment market

LONDON - April 7, 2015 - PRLog -- With just under 5 weeks left until the UK General Election, parties are now in full campaign mood and opinion polls are putting the two main parties neck to neck. The current government has seen UK employment rise to its highest rate since before the recession. However, who holds the key to building a stronger employment market?
