ONS Labour Market shows unemployment fall but worrying trends remain: comment from totaljobs.com

Ian Burke, director of totaljobs.com, said

“Today’s fall in unemployment, albeit small, is a great start to 2015 and will no doubt put a big smile on the face of the Conservative Party. However, worrying employment trends still remain - notably the number of people still on zero-hours contracts – a theme at the top of the political agenda in the run up to May’s general election. Workers in the UK are now starting to feel the benefits of real wage growth and as the country moves closer towards ‘full employment’, businesses must ensure that our continued economic recovery is built on secure and well paid employment.”
