Unemployment falling in Mid-Bedfordshire
Posted Wednesday, 21 January 2015 at 12:06
I've just had my monthly email from the Commons library about the jobless figures for Mid-Bedfordshire and the news is very encouraging.
The number of Jobseeker's Allowance claimants in Mid Bedfordshire in December 2014 was 443. This is just 0.8% of the economically active population aged 16 to 64.
The number of claimants is 302 lower than in December 2013 and 31 lower than in November 2014.
As always, there is more to be done for people who either have no job or who are underemployed with fewer hours than they want or need. But the overall trend is positive and I hope it continues across the next months and on into 2016.
