The Government has hit back at TUC claims that the UK remains in a job crisis, with a true scale of unemployment that far exceeds the official figures.
– Minister for Employment Mark Hoban
Once again the unions are showing just how out of touch they are.
Rather than welcoming the fact that employment is at a record high and the number of people claiming out of work benefits has fallen, they are determined to talk down both the economy and perhaps worse - the people who have actually worked hard to find themselves a job.
This is nothing but a cynical ploy from Labour's trade unions. The economy is growing and jobs are being created and they can't bear to welcome that.
