"Everyone who can work should work. This is the basis of our welfare system. Now that working life is changing, we are making a new start in our labour market policy. The Government is continuing to pursue a policy for more jobs and new investment in skills development. We are building a more secure working life, with good opportunities for development. This is how we will meet the future together."
