Labour Market Report #15

23 May 2011, by in Labour market

The latest TUC Labour Market Report is published today. There’s good news in the latest employment and unemployment figures – but there’s still a long way to go before we’re back to pre-recession levels of unemployment and the policy of excluding lone parents with older children from eligibility for Income Support is forcing up the number of women counted as unemployed.

It is worrying that the number of job vacancies fell in the latest figures – not a good sign for the future.
