Coalition will help youngsters find jobs regardless of their political views: CY Leung
Sunday, May 10, 2020
The co-founder of Hong Kong Coalition says he doesn't want to see tens of thousands of fresh graduates sitting at home without a job and that's why the coalition will help youngster find jobs regardless of their political stance.
Speaking on a TVB interview, former chief executive Leung Chun-ying said the current unemployment crisis has not been seen in two generations.
“Many young people have yet to realize the severity of an economic slowdown, I have never encountered a situation like this before. If they fail to find a job within a year of graduation, it will be very difficult for them to compete with next year’s graduates,” he said.
Leung denied claims that the assistance from the alliance has conditions: “The coalition is willing to help any youngsters regardless of their political stances, as long as they are willing to seek help from us.”
The coalition will find out the requirements of applicants and what jobs are they willing to do, after which they will then be matched with one of the coalition’s 1,545 co-conveners.
He added that the alliance is hoping to announce the results of the matching process within a month.
