A fall in the number of people unemployed is welcome, but people are now "worse off than when David Cameron came to office," says Shadow work and pensions secretary Rachel Reeves.
The comments come as the Office for National Statistics released its latest figures on UK unemployment numbers.
While this fall in overall unemployment is welcome, working people are over £1,600 a year worse off than when David Cameron came to office and pay has fallen behind inflation.
Thousands of people who work hard are struggling to make ends meet because of the Government's failure to tackle the cost-of-living crisis and make work pay.
