Today’s Labour Market Report (#15)

22 Jun 2011, by in Economic Reports, Labour market

We have just published this month’s Labour Market Report. While the headlines are higher employment and lower unemployment, there are some worrying other statistics. In particular, the labour market continues to favour men more than women and the Claimant Count shows unemployment rising. The Report includes a discussion of the contradiction between sluggish figures for GDP and relatively strong employment results and the explanations that have been put forward.
