Labour Market Report #30
The TUC’s latest Labour Market Report is now available online. Whilst there is good news, there is still cause for concern. Youth unemployment is still just under a million. Long term unemployment has continued to increase for those unemployed for over a year; 897,000 people have been unemployed for over one year and 444,000 people have been unemployed for over two years. Over 2 million people remain underemployed as 1.4m people are in part time work because they cannot find full time work, and 649,000 are in temporary work because they cannot find permanent work.
