Labour Market Report #26
We’ve just published this month’s TUC Labour Market Report. In this issue we look at the latest employment and unemployment figures. The worrying fall in full-time jobs is being disguised by a rise in part-time employment – but two-thirds of the part-time jobs are going to people who would have preferred to work full-time and there has been a particularly marked increase in the number of women in involuntary part-time work. Inflation has fallen recently, but this has not relieved the pressure on real wages, which have been falling since January.
