Recommended Posts

Wales is different, Wales is special.

EXTRAORDINARY official statistics that say Wales has seen a rise of 8.7% in public sector employment in a year have led to fears that spending cuts have yet to hit with full force.

The figure, published on the Office for National Statistics’ website Nomis, paints a different picture to the more conventional way of measuring changes in the labour market, which says there has been a decrease in public sector jobs in Wales.

According to Nomis, there was a rise in public sector employment of 35,800 jobs between June 2010 and June 2011 – equivalent to 8.7%.
