National Unemployment has fallen yet again – to the lowest it has been since 1975.
Michael Fabricant says: “Unemployment in the Lichfield Constituency based on the claimant rate is less than 1 percent: just 0.9%.
“We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. It is the 594th highest of the 650 UK constituencies, where 1st is the highest claimant rate and 650th is the lowest claimant rate. The equivalent UK claimant rate is 2.5%.
“The Lichfield constituency is a great place to live and work and has a highly skilled and motivated workforce. I have to say, this indicates that the economy is still strong – despite the gloom laden predictions of those who opposed Brexit! Indeed, the UK has one of the lowest unemployment rates both for adults and younger people in the whole of the EU.”
