Uk Employment/unemployment Thread

CPI up, unemployment down ... All hail brexit!

So when will IRs go up? No excuse not to especially if Fed hikes in September.

A US rate hike would increase global uncertainty and lend a deflationary bias to expectations... ergo another excuse for Dumbass and co. to cut again over here.

There's been a massive boom in underemployment, topped up by tax credits. How many crystal healers, nail technicians and cupcake makers does Britain need?

14.

Carney's friends at GS have to give green light first, maybe they're already covering £shorts, so who knows?

Along with the pound shops, cafe-bars and Aldi, the nail bars in the local high street (Kilburn) are always full of customers - even at 7 o'clock at night. The assumption is that they are paying customers of course, but I've seen no evidence to suggest otherwise.

While there are whole streets full of pseudo businesses whose real operation is money laundering, tax-credit rinsing, or hubby-funded hobbying, some of these outfits are meeting actual demand.

Nail bars, for instance. My daughter can't get an appointment for three weeks. As a true HPC frugalista, I have offered to do them myself (can't be that difficult - I'm sure it's on YouTube). But no. Kids today, eh?

Exactly

I'd be more interested to see the change in the number of people on tax credits over the same period

Blimey, 3 weeks waiting list for nail bar...what kind of world are we living in?

Visited two shopping centres last two weekends (West and North London). Couldn't help noticing shops replaced/being replaced by beauty saloons.
