Employment Blackspots -Update

15 Jun 2011, by in Labour market, Uncategorized

Our previous analysis in March showed that West Dunbartonshire was Britain’s worst employment blackspot. The unemployment data released today shows that West Dumartonshire still continues to be one of the hardest places in Britain to find a job, however it is even tougher in Invercylde to find a job, where over thirty dole claimants are chasing every vacancy.
