17,000 employed under Labour

The labour market statistics have been released, showing that unemployment has dropped to 3.9% - its lowest level since 2008. The number of unemployed has dropped to 109,000, 17,000 less than when the government took office.

This is a significant achievement, and it shows the lie behind National's whining about "business confidence". The real economy seems to be working, no matter how upset the rich seem to be about the change of government.
