Highest Figures of Unemployment in a decade
Unemployment has reached its highest figure in seventeen years, taking the total number of unemployed people to 2.62 million.
The reason for the increase is a combination of people coming out of economic inactivity, students claiming benefits for the first time, an increase in the number of people going into self-employment coupled with the highest number of women claiming benefits since 1987.
