21 Feb 2011, by in Economic Reports, Labour market

Today’s labour market report shows how concerning the state of the labour market is. The most recent labour market data cover the last quarter of 2010 (October – December) and show that employment levels remain low, unemployment is still high and that economic inactivity has sharply increased. In addition, inflation is rising far faster than wages, meaning that those in work are also experiencing significant pressure on their living standards.
