Job Fears for the South West

Employers across every region of the country are expecting to take on more people over the next three months EXCEPT in the South West.
The latest jobs figures for the South West show 137,000 people were unemployed in our region for the months May to July 2014. This is a slight increase on the previous quarter of February to April when 136,000 were out of work.
The unemployment rate has risen 0.1% to 5.0%, which is still one of the lowest rates it’s been for the last 6 years.
Across the whole of the UK unemployment fell by 146,000 to 2.02million in the three months to the end of the July. The unemployment rate fell to 6.2%, its lowest rate since the September to November 2008.
