jobs and the economy

Blog on jobs

Pretty depressing viewing. I’m just glad to have a job at the moment, and these figures back up my gratitude. According to this, the next three months will continue to be tough, with the possibility of improvements after.
While the public sector has previously been softening the blow, it seems now that even public sector jobs are at risk, with 3,000 expected to go in the next six months.
The bit that most gets me is “Overall many more employers are expecting to fire rather than hire staff. The gap between the two is the biggest in the survey's five-year history.”
This is the worst in (five years) history! Oh no.
That’s something of a stupid statement. Five years is nothing really in the grand scheme of things. It just struck me as a bit silly-sounding.
