Employment Blackspots Update
Continuing with our reporting on employment black spots in Britain, the unemployment data released today shows that Harringay is the hardest place in Britain to find a job. In Harringay there are over twenty five dole claimants chasing every vacancy. Since we have been reporting on employment blackspots (March 2011) Harringay has appeared in the top 10 every month, and in June Harringay had again been the hardest place to find a job.
Our previous analysis in May which examined the unemployment data from March 2005 to March 2011 found strong evidence of persistent poor local job prospects, with London being one of the worst hit areas of the country. Four London Boroughs including Hackney, Haringey, and Lewisham have been in the top ten employment blackspots in Britain for five of the last seven years. The figures today show that four London boroughs are still in the top 10, Harringay, Hackney, Lewisham and Redbridge.
