TUC: Frances O'Grady says unemployment fall welcome but not everyone is benefiting

TUC press release

Responding to the latest unemployment figures published today (Wednesday) by the Office for National Statistics TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:

"It's encouraging to see another fall in unemployment, but not everyone is benefiting from the recent jobs growth.

"The number of young people out of work is edging back up towards a million, so the Chancellor must put tackling our youth jobs crisis at the top of his Budget priority list. He can start by introducing a guarantee of paid work for any young person out of work for six months or longer.

"The further squeeze on people's wages is also concerning. This is looking less like a temporary blip, and more like a longer-term problem for the economy.

"Without stronger growth, new jobs will continue to be concentrated in low-wage, low-productivity sectors and we won’t see the healthy pay rises that we so desperately need."
