Today’s Labour Market Report (#17)
We have just published this month’s Labour Market Report, covering the latest Labour Market data. Again the headline figures for employment and unemployment are good, but these are more worrying items too. Claimant Count unemployment is rising but job vacancies are at a very low level. Labour market results for women have been worse than those for men for a year now and the number of women receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance is the highest since 1996.
