Lowest unemployment since 2009

Liberal Democrats in Redcar and Cleveland Borough are delighted that unemployment in the Area is at its lowest since April 2009, following another fall in October.
Research also shows that unemployment in the area fell each month since February this year.
Lib Dem Council Group Leader Glyn Nightingale said:
“It is great to end the year with some good news like this. The fall in unemployment across the year means a happier Christmas for many local families. I am sure that the economic recovery will continue next year.
“There is still more to do, but it shows that the Government’s policies are working to provide growth, prosperity and jobs to our area.
“I am particularly pleased that Wilton-based Applied Graphene Materials are planning to increase their workforce from 10 to over 30 in the near future."

Cllr Abbott...I have read your post but what you actually do fail to mention is that the majority of these posts are part-time 0 hour positions and are NOT temporary work. If they were full-time positions that offered guaranteed hours and a permanent contract I would certainly join you in celebrating the figures and would welcome the news. As they are not I refuse to celebrate uncertainty.

These are real jobs mate and it is going to get better as time moves on now that the measures, the Coalition took to get us out of the financial mess the previous Labour Government got us into, are working faster than expected.
