Unemployment at 7.9%

Labour Market

Latest reports from the Office for National Standards (ONS) indicate that the level of unemployment in within the UK is fallen. The UK jobless rate (7.9%) is now lower than that of the EU (10.5%).

Despite these positive results there is still work to be done. The report shows an increase in long-term unemployment.  A large proportion of people find work in under 6 months of being unemployed but there are still around a third that are unemployed for over a year (up 13,000 from March to May 2012).
