United Kingdom -Recovery doesn’t end disparities -August 13, 2014

According to the TUC the jobs being created are low paid, insecure and could lead to a recovery being built on sand. Any fall in unemployment is to be welcomed, but working people are not feeling the benefits of recovery.

Trade union confederation TUC reacted on recent publications from the Bank of England and the National Statistics Office. The second quarter of the year the statistics show less unemployment and more people in work. According to the Regional Labour Market figures unemployment is spread very uneven (ranging from 9.4% in the North East to 4.4% in the South East). According to the TUC the jobs being created are low paid, insecure and could lead to a recovery being built on sand. Any fall in unemployment is to be welcomed, but working people are not feeling the benefits of recovery.
