Unemployment Rises to 2.6 Million

Responding to news that unemployment has risen by 128,000 to 2.638 million in the three months to October, RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said:

“These latest shocking figures show that all the Governments promises on jobs and apprenticeships are as hollow as a chocolate Father Christmas.

This ConDem government have sat back and done nothing while the gap between haves and have-nots in Britain has widened to record levels on their watch.

Nowhere is the Governments inaction and impotency more graphically illustrated than at Bombardier in Derby where their kow-towing to the EU and Siemens has left thousands of manufacturing jobs and apprenticeships on the block. They are a total disgrace. “
