Labour Market Report #26

24 May 2012, by in Economic Reports, Labour market

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.
