Whatever Happened To The Jobless Recovery ?

Recommended Posts

It's back

"Revealed: The locations of the 11 Morrisons stores set to close as supermarket cull puts 900 staff out of work"

Not to worry. This will enable the creation of at least 2700 zero hours contract workers therefore boosting the stats.

The Morrisons not that far away from me is always busy........so must be something to do with how many supermarkets there are in the local area .... people will tend to use the ones they prefer and trust..... their ethics and ethos.

Heard the term "pay poor recovery" on lunchtime BBC business news, very appropriate

Very apt.

I work in IT and many of our UK contractors have not had a rate rise for 4yrs. Going on 5yrs as we won't raise in 2016.

Taken with latest HMRC tax-grab, they will be working for 10-15% less than in 2012.

I'm encouraged by the mixed and muted (no fanfare) views in MSM about today's employment figures, very much the same as in the States right now, people are fed up of being paid wages of 5+ years ago whilst our most important asset goal screams ever higher. Bombardier news now coming into news feeds on TV.

Probably also fed up with the jobs report in the USA, particularly, being a complete farce and basically made up.

Absolutely, they are no more naive than us, was very bizarre being over in California recently compared to a few years ago, malls very quiet with mainly just Chinese tourists, even in some *very* obscure locations, there's a lot of pain over there right now despite the jobs figures.

Number of EU workers in Britain now above 2m.

Quarter of a million more foreigners wiping the bankers' arses than the year before.

Britain’s record of low unemployment acted as magnet for European Union migrants last year, sending the total number of workers from the other 27 EU nations in the UK above 2 million for the first time.

Employment figures covering the three months to December show that the number of non-UK EU nationals working in Britain rose to 2.04 million.

Over the previous year, 278,000 UK workers found a job, taking the total number in work to 28.28 million, while the total number of non-UK nationals working in Britain increased by 254,000 to 3.22 million.

The figures are likely to put pressure on David Cameron as he battles to restrict the access to some in-work benefits to UK nationals during his negotiations with EU leaders.

The Tory party and some economists believe the lure of tax credits and child benefit, which act as a top-up for lower wage jobs, has encouraged a wave of migrant workers into minimum-wage service industry jobs.
