Four Million more people in work
New jobs figures today show there are almost four million more people in work since 2010 - showing the progress of Conservative governments in giving more people the security of work.
- The UK, like economies across the world, is facing economic pressures, but thanks to a strong workforce our economy is resilient and we are making progress on our priority to halve inflation.
- New figures released today show there are almost 33 million people employed across the UK, meaning there are almost four million more people in work since 2010 and 1.1 million more people in payrolled employment since before the pandemic.
- Governments do not create jobs, Business does. The Conseratives have been working to help business create new jobs, and over the past twelve years this strategy has been succeeding. By comparison no Labour government since World War II has left office with unemployment lower than when they were elected, only the Conservatives can deliver the jobs we need.
- The best strategy is a jobs strategy - giving people the security of their own income as we work to halve inflation, grow the economy and reduce debt.
