Steve McCabe MP for Birmingham Selly Oak has expressed his concern about unemployment figures released today which show unemployment in his constituency is up on both the past month and the past year. The figures show that unemployment among those eligible to work in Selly Oak is up to 4.4% compared to 2.4% nationally. Commenting on the figures, Steve McCabe MP said:
“It is really worrying that unemployment continues to rise in my constituency and continues to be way above the national average. The last figures show unemployment in Selly Oak is up to 4.4% which makes this constituency in the top 11% for unemployment across the country. We are told all the time by the current government that they have fixed the economy but not enough is being done to invest in jobs and skills in Birmingham, we need an active programme of investment in skills, targeted support for businesses and real help for people in Selly Oak to find decent paid, quality jobs.”
