Unemployment Up Again

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Mass unemployment, in the sixth year of recession, shows that the Tories/Liberal Government is following the wrong economic policy.

The political stagnation is such that while the OBR said that public spending cuts would deflate GDP by 2.7% no one seriously expects a U turn in today’s budget.

GMB commented on the latest unemployment figures released today (20th March 2013).

Paul Kenny GMB General Secretary said “That there is still mass unemployment, in the sixth year of recession, shows that the Tories/ Liberal government is following the wrong economic policy.

The political stagnation in the coalition government is such that while the OBR said that public spending cuts would deflate GDP by 2.7% no one seriously expects a U turn in today’s budget. Vince Cable huffs and puffs but that is about it. The young people are the ones paying the highest price for this madness.”
