UK Unemployment Figures Highest Since 1997

The official unemployment figures have just been released and show that unemployment has risen to 1.86 million for the first time in eleven years or since Mr Blair’s New Labour came into office to form the current government.
The analysis shows that the worst hit areas are in the temporary worker sector where businesses are cutting back on staff due to the credit crunch.
The worst hit group of people where unemployment has hit hardest is for the young. Under twenty fives are coming under increasing unemployment with one in seven unemployed, and it is extremely hard for someone just leaving education to find employment. Over 1 million people are claiming job seekers allowance.
