Employment minister Esther McVey. Promoting Self Employment
Employment minister Esther McVey has been telling middle-class kids they should believe setting up their own business “is every bit as good as going to university and working for a big company,” according to the Daily Telegraph.
Ms McVey told The Telegraph self-employment should be given the same social status and respect as the more conventional university route into employment. Someone should ask Richard Branson whether he thinks starting his own business was just as “good as going to university”.
