Labour Market Report #22

20 Jan 2012, by Guest in Economic Reports

The TUC’s Labour Market Report on the January Labour Market Statistics is now available online here.

The unemployment rate has reached its highest level since 1995 and although employment also grew, there are some worrying signs in the composition of that employment. Self employment is soaring but the evidence suggests this may be a sign of economic weakness rather than strength, involuntary part-time work hit a new record high and earnings growth remains weak.
