Record numbers in work
News ONS figures out this week include the welcome news that a record number of people are in work.
- Even in the face of global economic challenges the UK labour market remains resilient, and Conservatives are determined to support families across the country by delivering on our promise to halve inflation and reduce debt.
- That is why today we welcome the news that a record number of people are in work – with ONS figures showing that the number of employees on the payroll is now 888,000 above pre-Covid levels.
- This news that more people across the country is good news for those people and their families and because it will help us all get back to long-term growth, which will ultimately make possible higher wages, and better living standards for everyone.
