Commenting on today’s labour market statistics, Ian Brinkley, director of The Work Foundation, said
Commenting on today’s GDP figures, Charles Levy, senior economist at the Big Innovation Centre, said:“The UK has avoided a technical triple dip recession, however our economy remains in stasis. Half a decade since the onset of the recession, the picture remains one of stagnation, with the UK struggling to find new sources of growth.
Commenting on today’s labour market statistics, Ian Brinkley, director of The Work Foundation, said:
“As we predicted, economic reality has caught up with the labour market. The jobs recovery of 2012 appears to have stalled.
“The Budget measures will have no measurable impact on economic prospects. The priority should have been significant new investment in science, technology and innovation and in measures to address youth unemployment, rather than corporation tax cuts.
“The new employment allowance for new hires is likely to be less wasteful than some past schemes, but will only have a limited impact on the labour market.”
Commenting on today’s labour market statistics, Ian Brinkley, director at The Work Foundation, said that more people are in work, but there are clear warning signs that the run of exceptionally good news from the labour market may be coming to an end.
