Labour Market Report #24

19 Mar 2012, by in Economic Reports, Labour market

We have just published the latest edition of our Labour Market Report. In this month’s Report we look at the highest unemployment rate since 1995; 2011 – the year when private sector jobs growth failed to keep up with public sector job losses; lower finance sector bonuses and low growth rate for public sector pay pulling down overall average. We report on the employment figures mirage – an essentially flat overall figure disguises large movements in part-time and full-time jobs: the number of full-time jobs was down 50,000 from the previous quarter.
