18,000 unemployed under Labour

This quarter's Labour Market Statistics were expected to be a horror-show, as the effects of the pandemic bit and threw people out of work. Instead, there's been a slight decrease in unemployment, to 141,000 - 18,000 more than when Labour took office. So once again Labour's policy of trying to support everyone through the pandemic is working. And hopefully, that will continue.
