Unemployment continues to fall across York

June 17, 2015

Julian has today welcomed the news that unemployment has once again fallen across York.

The latest figures from the Office of National Statistics show that the number of people claiming out of work benefits in York has fallen from over 3,700 in May 2010, to just over 1,000 people today. Real wage growth is at its highest rate in seven years, whilst the proportion of the workforce claiming unemployment benefits is at its lowest level since 1975.

Responding to the figures, Julian said “It is fantastic news that unemployment across the whole of York has fallen by more than 70%, with more and more people getting back into work. The city continues to lead the way in our economic recovery as we have one of the lowest levels of unemployment anywhere in the country.”

“Businesses have been creating on average a 1,000 new jobs every single day over the past five years, the vast majority of which are in full time positions. Crucially, three-quarters of the rise in employment is due to new jobs being listed outside of London, with the North considerably outstripping the South in terms of job creation.”
