Asked whether the unemployment figures were signs of green shoots, the PMS said that the country was still facing challenging economic times. We welcomed the latest figures and the drop in unemployment. The Government was doing everything it could to ensure unemployment continued to fall.

Asked if there was a fundamental shift in employment, from full-time to part-time work, the PMS said that there was still uncertainty in the economy and a lack of confidence due to the Eurozone. That would affect businesses’ decisions to take people on, but it was better for people to be in some form of employment so that they could gain skills and experience to help them secure a permanent job if they wanted one.
