REC Latest Unemployment Figures
Unemployment figures published by the Office for National Statistics have shown a rise of 27,000 to 2.53 million in the number of people out of work in the three months up until January.
Kevin Green, the REC’s Chief Executive has said,
‘Today’s figures confirm that the private sector is some way off being able to absorb public sector cuts. The onus now is on the Chancellor to announce measures in the Budget next Wednesday which will stimulate the economy and generate job creation. The real scandal still remains the number of young people not in work or education.’
