Latest jobs figures
- 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, which means there are almost four million more people in work since 2010 and 1.1 million more people in payrolled employment since before the pandemic. By comparison, since WWII, Labour have never left office with unemployment lower than when they were elected, only the Conservatives can deliver the jobs we need.
- We know 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.
