The Prime Minister David Cameron has been accused by Labour of making job promises that sound like "empty words".
Mr Cameron said today he wanted Britain to overtake Germany and become a nation of "full employment".
His goal would see the UK move ahead of Germany, who have 74 per cent of people in work.
Mr Cameron did not set a date he would like to have achieved his aim by.
Broadcaster and threatre critic Belle Lupton joined the Evening News to discuss whether such a goal was achievable and to clarify what exactly "full employment" means, which has changed since the term was first coined after the First World War. Belle says it has become a vague, almost meaningless term that makes for a great political soundbite but little else. It currently means around three quarters of the population being in employment.
