GMB On Mass Unemployment

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

That we have mass unemployment of two and a half million five years into this recession is waste on a grand scale

What is tragic it that there is no light at the end of the tunnel as we are in the middle of a triple dip recession says GMB GMB commented on the latest unemployment figures.

Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary, said "That we have mass unemployment of two and a half million five years into this recession is waste on a grand scale. To this must be added the millions in enforced temporary and part time jobs and those massively underemployed. There are some employers where temporary and agency staff outnumber permanent staff by two to one.

What is tragic it that there is no light at the end of the tunnel as we are in the middle of a triple dip recession. Even now will the Lib Dems force a change in policy? We must not forget that the Tories do not have a majority in Parliament so they could be forced to abandon this failed policy and use the budget for growth."
