According the ILO’s “World of Work Report 2012: Better Jobs for a Better Economy”, despite signs that economic growth has resumed in some regions, the global employment situation is alarming and shows no sign of recovery in the near future

Responding to the latest unemployment figures published today by the Office for National Statistics, TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:'These figures are bad, although thankfully not quite the disaster we saw at the end of last year.'

Analysis of today’s unemployment figures, by the think tank IPPR, shows that women and young workers have born the brunt of rising unemployment over the last year. Unemployment has now risen for the eight month in a row and the UK’s unemployment rate (8.4 per cent) is now the worst for 17 years, since 1995.
