VIDEO: Employment trends May 2013

21 May 2013, by in Labour market

I’ve recorded this video taking a look at May’s employment figures. The headlines were very worrying, with employment down and unemployment up. But the news on average earnings was even more depressing. Record low increases in average earnings give a hint that Britain may be moving towards a low productivity, low quality, low paid economy with stagnant living standards. This country desperately needs a plan for growth.
