Today’s Labour Market Figures

13 Jul 2011, by in Economics

I have a post at Left Foot Forward, looking at today’s employment figures. I note that once again the headline results for employment and unemployment are good (with encouraging movement in the number of unemployed young people and long-term unemployed people.) But the rise in the Claimant Count measure of unemployment, the increase in the number of redundancies and the falling level of vacancies all point to hard times ahead.
